The AVBS Demo Weekend is Back!

We’re back this month with our annual Demo Weekend, and we couldn’t be more excited!

All the big brand names are back with their fleet of bikes, showcasing the latest models in the newest colourways. This is your opportunity to test ride some fantastic mountain bikes, and e-bikes, on the best trails in the Afan Valley.

Brands in attendance will be Transition, Santa Cruz, Orange, Whyte and Marin. While we don’t have a specific stocklist of models and sizes, we assure that there will be a wide variety available from all brands.

What you need to know

When: October 26th & 27th, 2019
Time: 09:00 – 15:00
Where: Afan Valley Bike Shed, Afan Forest Park Visitor Centre, Port Talbot, SA13 3HG

We’re not taking bookings for this event. It’ll operate on a first-come-first-serve basis, so best to arrive early to avoid disappointment. The doors will open at 09:00 on both Saturday, October 26th and Sunday, October 27th at the Afan Valley Bike Shed.

You’ll need to bring a form of photographic ID, such as a passport or driver’s licence, and a valid bank card. We will hold onto these items while you’re out riding the demo bikes, and return them once the bikes have come back to us.

Please bring £15 in cash as a donation to the maintenance of the trails in Afan.

If any riders are under the age of 18, they will need to be accompanied by an adult for the day.


Throughout the weekend, we’ll also have all our hire bikes priced up and tagged for those looking for a second-hand bargain. We’ll also be joined by both Smith and ION who will be showcasing their latest products, and new Afan Valley Bike Shed merch will also be available!

If you have any further questions about the Demo Weekend, please give us a call on 01639 851406. We look forward to seeing you there!
