Ride the latest mountain bikes at the Cycle Show 2019
All the brands you'll be able to take for a spin on the Bosch eBike Systems Test Track supported by MBUK
There's tons of stuff going on at this year's Cycle Show – see our previous article for details – but one of the highlights is sure to be the Bosch eBike Systems Test Track supported by MBUK. Here, you'll be able to try out the latest mountain bikes on a 1.7km outdoor trail loop built by pro BMXer/DH racer Kye Forte. Models from the following brands will be available:
- Ribble (including the HT Ti, pictured above, and the Adventure 275 bikepacking rig)
E-bikes equipped with Bosch's latest motors and batteries will be available to sling a leg over, and you'll also be able to try out some of Genesis's gravel/adventure bikes, in case you're feeling lured towards the drop-barred dark side!
Test rides are free and advance booking isn't required. You'll just need to complete a registration form and supply a valid form of photo ID or a credit card (to act as a security deposit). See you there!
