After a roaring success at our Bath and Cannock Chase demo days this year we've already got the dates for your diary in 2019 sorted, where you'll be able to try out some of the best bikes around from the likes of Canyon, Giant, Pinarello and many more!
Brought to you by road.cc, off.road.cc and eBikeTips, BikeLive gives you the chance to test out some quality new bikes and gear, particularly useful if you're planning a new bike purchase. You might just fancy trying something new like an e-mountain bike if you've never had the pleasure (trust us they're good fun!) and there will be plenty of sizes and models available from all of our brands attending. Here are a few more details so you can get booking your tickets, just £15 with a packed goody bag included for the price...
We'll be back at the purpose-built Odd Down circuit in Bath again for 2019, this year at a slightly later date in the calendar (let's hope that means improving weather!) The 1.5km track is perfect for trying out bikes in a traffic-free environment, and for off-roaders there will also be some muddier guided e-mountain bike rideouts led by eBikeTips editor Dave Atkinson.
It's the perfect way to test out new bikes you've got your eye on, or just to have a fun day of riding and chat to some like-minded people. Refreshments will be available on site and Odd Down is just a couple of miles away from Bath City Centre, which is well worth a visit if you fancy extending your day out. We've already got Canyon and Pinarello confirmed and there will be many more brands added in the run-up to the event; so sign up to book your tickets and we'll see you there!
Venue: Chelwood Drive, Bath and North East Somerset, BA2 2PR
Times: 10:00am - 5:00pm
Riding types: road, e-bike, e-MTB
With miles of marked out trails, gravel tracks and a 5km circuit on quiet country lanes, it's no wonder we're coming back to Cannock Chase in 2019. We'll have pretty much every type of bike you could want to try out, with Giant, Liv, Canyon and Identiti already confirmed plus many more brands to be added over the coming months.
Plenty of refreshments will be available on site, Cannock Chase is a great day out for the family and everyone will leave with a packed goody bag, so secure your tickets now for a great day of riding in some stunning surroundings!

After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He was Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine for two years before joining road.cc in 2017, and reports on all things tech as well as editing the road.cc live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
