Wheelbase North East MTB Demo Day Event Report – Fun in the Sun!

Hot on the heels of our Big Demo Weekend in the Lake District, yet again it was time for the Wheelbase crew and the best brands in the Mountain Bike world to assemble at Hamsterley Forest, ready for an action packed day of riding the latest and greatest mountain bike technology on the super fun trail of the Hamsterley trail centre. Such was on our side once more and following the good wether at the Big Demo Weekend a fe week previous, we were graced again with dusty trails which made for great riding conditions allowing riders to push some amazing bikes to their limits of traction.

With over 100 riders in attendance and enjoying the dry, fast, flowy riding conditions, the representatives from Cube, Merida, Orbea, Trek, Whyte, Yeti were busy all day setting up each machine for every rider, ensuring the best performance was gained from every ride and enabling riders to spend as much time riding the trails as possible whilst conditions were in their prime.

We’d like to thank all of our customers who attended, our fantastic representatives from each bike brand for supplying us with the world’s best bikes and the hard-working guides for getting everyone around the trails safely and with a huge smile on their faces. We can’t wait to do it all again next year. If for some reason you couldn’t quite make it this year, don’t worry… pencil it in your diary for a similar date next year and we’ll see you there.

In the mean time check out some of the photography from the event captured by the talented Jake McKenna (www.
