Fineshade Cycling is to mark February’s leap year with a number of incentives to get its customers aboard 29ers.
Throughout the duration of February, the new East Midlands trail centre, part of the Rutland Cycling family, is to offer a 29 per cent discount on all day hires of the larger wheeled bikes.
A demo day, set for February 18th (Saturday), will also give interested riders the opportunity to test a number of 29ers for free.
Gavin Thompson, of the Fineshade management team, said: “The demo day on Saturday 18th of February will be really good fun. In addition to our own fleet of bikes the best brands will be present to provide expert advice and answer questions. It’s exciting to host a gathering of the mountain bike community and provide a platform for what is a hot topic! We’re really proud of the new red routes at Fineshade and it’s great that riders from the East Midlands no longer have to travel so far for singletrack action. This day should help introduce people to what is a fantastic venue.”
Further to that, those who do take part will be entered into a prize draw to win a Scott 29er and singletrack package worth £900.
Graham Atkins, one of the Fineshade store managers and a 29er devotee, explains that “here at Fineshade we already have a great range of 29ers available to demo. Clearly there is a lot of discussion about the pros and cons of larger wheel bikes, and at Fineshade Cycling people can hire the latest models from top brands like Scott, Giant, and Specialized and try them out on red forest routes."
The 29 per cent saving off a 29er demo runs throughout February and bikes must be reserved in advance. To demo bikes on the 18th, riders will need a credit card and proof of ID.
