    • helmet and appropriate riding gear
    • photo ID

  • New for 2018 the team from Southern Enduro are hosting a demo event at the Southern Enduro Champs weekend. We'll be there and would love to see you too! An excellent chance for anyone from the south west to get a ride on a Bird. LOCATION: Southern Enduro Champs, Minehead, Exmoor, TA24 8SW DATE: 14th…

  • Ben's favourite little trail centre, for what Eastridge lacks in scale, it makes up for in fun. One of the best sites to demo a bike anywhere in the UK, Eastridge packs in more trail variety into an hour that pretty much anywhere else. Other facilities at Eastridge are limited though (read none) so please…

  • Situated half way along the Y Wal trail, and with the Bike park, 4x track and cafe right there, Afan's Bryn Bettws is definitely a firm favourite for demos. The demo loop takes in some pretty incredible descents (red or black options available) and a fine technical climb back up to the campsite. PLEASE NOTE…

  • Its our first time demoing in the Lakes so it should be a great day out for us and you. We're making this one a little longer than normal to account for the terrain and probable loop with a 3 hours session on the bike. Book now to avoid disappointment! PLEASE NOTE REGISTRATION FOR THIS…

Not only does Bird have one of the biggest and best distributed permanent demo fleets in the country, and a massive demo calendar for 2018, we’re also supporting grass roots and high level enduro racing across the country.

Our Enduro team has won multiple UK races, national titles and even the odd EWS. The Aeris range stands proud as one of the most popular and successful Enduro race bikes in the UK.

Its not just the bike though, Bird sponsors and offers rider support at many of the UK top races. If you own a Bird you can come and use our facilities and get work done if needed on your bike ** for free at the race event. How cool is that?

If you don’t own a bird but would like to see them in the flesh, then its a great opportunity for you to come and chat, swing a leg over a bike and talk about the range with the people that design, build and race the bikes.

** This is not an alternative to proper maintenance!
