I had a fantastic time at the Marin UK Demo Day in Cheltenham on Tuesday. Everybody knows the popular bike manufacturer Marin County in California, US, so when I got the chance to go with Otec Bikes to test ride their new 2017 bikes there was no way I would have not gone.
Marin Bikes launched their new product range for 2017 just outside Cheltenham at the Flyup 417 Project. The biggest privately owned mountain bike facility in the county proved to be the perfect venue to showcase and test ride their new bikes.
Besides plenty of great coffee and BBQ burgers at lunch time we got offered to chose whichever bike we liked for test spins. I am not getting into much detail here about the bikes that I have ridden, but will publish a post about my favourite one soon.
A highlight to me was that we had the chance to ride the trails with professional riders Martha, Chris and Nikki from the Marin Team. They took time for us and gave valid advice to all of us.
Thanks to my friends Lee, Jack, John and Sam from Otec Bikes in Halton for taking me along.
