Event Venue: The Event Field at Worcester Walk, Speech House Road, Broadwell, GL16 7EH

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 the inaugural event, we have bigger plans for the Forest of Dean MBR Demo Day for 2018. It will span two days giving us the chance to get more test riders on the trails.

Using the Forest of Dean trails we mark out two loops, one more technical than the other, which should get you back to our demo centre in 40-50 minutes, depending on how long it takes you to climb/if you have uplift. Which gives 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.

  • 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

  • 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.😀👍

  • 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.

  • 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!

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