If you’re having trouble deciding on your next mountain bike purchase and need some help to choose between 27.5 or 29er? Or even full suspension vs hard tail? Or if you are just looking for a exciting enduro race to take part in, this event is for you!

The QE Cycle Fest returns to Queen Elizabeth country park with a bigger and better line up than any other year. Last year the event reached uncharted highs by winning the prestigious “Best Retail Event” at the bikebiz awards. With over 120 bikes to test on the weekend it makes this event one of the largest in the UK.

Queen Elizabeth Country Park is the ideal location to hold such an event as it is central to our customer catchment but offers miles of dedicated trails which are of mixed capabilities.

The festival commences by opening the gates to the campsite for the early arrivals at 3pm on Friday 13th May and the festival will finish at 5pm Sunday 15th May.

The Hargroves Cycles team can’t wait to see you all on the 14th of May, and make this Cyclefest even better than the last!

Lit by Exposure Lights

Back by popular demand as it was hugely successful last year is the Day & Night Enduro. An enduro like no other, whereby you practise in the day and race at night. The organisers of the race the QECP Trail Collective, are working hard to put together a course which will be exciting under the cover of darkness*. Lights must be used by the communicated time but they must be on the bike when the race starts.
