Social media start up turned industry fixture MTB Meet Up returns

Started with a simple hashtag, but now an industry-backed annual fixture, the MTB Meet Up is to return to Oneplanet Adventure from June 1st through 3rd, 2018.

Started by Simon Bradley with the hashtag #MTBmeetup, the now award-nominated event drew over 1,200 riders in 2017 and builds in bike brand exhibitions, demos and even photography courses, among other ride-based activities.

Already signed up for the event are Bird Bikes (who will have demo bikes on hand for you to try), Sixth Element Wheels, Broken Riders, Alpkit & Polaris Bikewear, along with Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery supplying free beer and loads more to be revealed over the next few months.

There will be a Friday evening guided ride ahead of the main event on Saturday, with a days’ worth of riding to be followed up with some special evening activities to celebrate 5 years of MTBMeetup. Sunday is a chilled day of riding with whoever is still standing.
