Event Venue: Dalby Forest Park, By Pickering, North Yorkshire, YO18 7LT

In 2017 we teamed up with MBR and some of the industry’s top brands for the very first Forest of Dean MBR Demo Day and it was a belter of a day.

Due to the success of this event, we have decided to launch the Dalby Forest MBR Demo Day.

There are two demo loops, the main one is a 20-minute blast which takes in some of the best features of the World Cup trail with linking sections of fast flowing Red trail. If you want to understand what the bike you are testing can do, this all-encompassing Demo loop is the place to be. The second loop will have you grinning from ear to ear with fast berms, small-medium features before a steady section 12 fire road climb back to the start at Adderstone Field.  These fun, fast loops will give you time to test plenty of bikes!

Demo days with a difference:

The MBR Demo Days are demo days with a difference. We are asking you to be MBR bike testers for the day. We want you to rate the bikes you ride and give us your feedback to go towards an MBR Demo Day bike test feature. We will also have our MBR photographers out on the trails so you will be able to download photos of yourselves shredding the best new bikes for free. Then at the end of the day, you’re invited to share a beer with our team.

Under 16s

We welcome riders aged under 16 years of age to attend the MBR Demo Day however, they must be accompanied by a paying adult.


On the day of the Demo, we ask that all riders bring along a form of identification with them. Preferably, this would be your passport. A driving licence will be acceptable if you do not have a passport. Under 16's should be accompanied by an adult, so they do not need to present ID.

What our customers say about us

  • I completed the Ay Up Yorkshire this weekend. The EPIC course was my first 100mile ride, and I really enjoyed the challenge. The big climbs are close enough to home to give them another go! Really well-organised, excellent course signs, and great to see medical support available out one the course.😀👍

  • Superb organisation and in ride support. The New Forest event was the best-organised event I completed in 2019

  • Had one amazing experience. My first 100 miles on the bike in amazing route, friendly staff. Really recommend UK cycling events. Can not wait for the next one.

  • A great day out with great staff and well planned.

  • I went on the Box Hill sportive. It was a very well organized event, with marshals at the busiest junctions and signage at every junction, plus feed stations. There was a proper start/finish line with chip timing. The route was downloadable in advance as a .gpx file. Very nice scenery in the surrey hills area of outstanding natural beauty.

  • well organised event. The new forest route was stunning with beautiful wild life on the way

  • I would just like to say a big thank you to all the marshals and support mechanics on the Wattbike Falkirk Ride on Sunday; the guys were absolutely amazing. We had several issues en route including punctures, cramps, a crash and ever-decreasing morale, but these guys supported us right to the bitter end and got us through the epic course. I have never attended such a well-organised event; even the signage was spot on. So well done and thank you!

  • Brilliantly organised event! I'm very new to cycling and did this event on my own but still chatted to lots of people and had a great day! Would definitely recommend UKCE to everyone! To top it off it was a lovely warm day in the beautiful New Forest! Excellent

  • Did the Watt Bike 40 mile Sportive today, had a lovely time. Great route on quiet roads with challenging hills, all well signposted and a lovely atmosphere. The marshalls & staff deserve a special thank you for standing out for hours in truly gruesome weather. The feed station was well stocked with all needs catered for, the bike wash stocked up with Muc-off products and the soup at the end were the icing on the cake. Southwell racecourse had brilliant facilities. Shame about the weather being freezing cold & sooo wet but totally worth it, had a lot of fun. Thank you to all involved.

  • Just completed the Eye up in Rippon the Standard absolutely brilliant well organised and good signage. Have done a few e events this year. 2020 I will be in my 80th year so looking forward to taking part in UK Cycling Events.
