Leisure Lakes Bikes is one of the UK's largest independent mountain bike retailers, offering a range of mountain bikes, electric bikes, road bikes, accessories, and more. The Gisburn MTB Demo Weekend offers cyclists the chance to test the latest models, as well as letting riders of all abilities experience riding on a range of terrains and getting a fun day out in the Ribble Valley.

The demo weekend builds on previous successful events such as their Cannock Chase Demo Weekend. Ben Mercer, Marketing and Events Manager of Leisure Lakes Bikes, is excited about the weekend ahead: "The North West is one of the best spots in the UK for mountain biking trails; and we can't wait to bring the world's best mountain bikes & e-MTBs for riders of all skill levels to test out back-to-back at Gisburn Forest.

"Leisure Lakes Bikes staff will be there to answer all questions attendees may have and offer personalised recommendations to help you find the perfect bike.

Tickets will cost £40 per day, with a portion of each ticket sale donated to the North West Air Ambulance and the Forestry Commission.

"Giving back to those in need has always been important to LLB and our mission," says Ben, "which is why 50% of the deposit fee for previous demo weekends has gone to charity, so you can be sure that when you're booking, you're also helping a good cause."

All ages are welcome but riders must be over the age of 16 to demo an adult bike. Valid photo ID in the form of a Passport or Driving License must be provided, as well as your own helmet. Visitors are also encouraged to bring their own pedals for a more realistic and comfortable experience while trialling the bike.
