Bike Try-Out Roadshow in Crow Nest Park

You never know until you try! That is the message of the Company of Cyclists Road Show taking place in Crow Nest Park, Dewsbury on the 12 July 2003.

The York based Company of Cyclists will be bringing along over 40 different types of cycle for young people and adults to test out. A carnival atmosphere will be created and a separate track for the under 5 year olds.

*Expert staff will be on hand to answer your questions, give impartial advice and give out free fact sheets.

*Demonstrations will be given on bike maintenance

*A free cycle bell for the first 300 attending

Although exotic bikes to tickle your fancy are available, lots of conventional bikes will also be available to try-out: the sort of bikes you can buy in good bike shops.

So come along to Crow Nest Park, Dewsbury on the 12 July 2003 between 10 am and 4 pm to test out lots of bikes. The day is totally free and all the family will be guaranteed to get turned-on to cycling.

The day is organised by the Company of Cyclists (York) with financial support from Kirklees MC.
