One of the things Biketreks has always prided itself on is our ability to offer you the chance to ride fancy bikes and try new kit in a stunning part of the country.
All the bikes we have at Grizedale are for demo (or hire) and we've plenty to go at. We run them all year round and they get booked out really quickly so we'd advise booking at least 2 weeks in advance to avoid disappointment.
We have a very strict set of rules when it comes to borrowing our demo bikes so please have a read before getting in touch as they are non-negotiable (our insurance policy dictates most of it!).
If you're happy to abide by the rules then the brands and bikes we have for you are as follows
Specialized. Made for riders, by riders
We have worked with Specialized for over 20 years, is our biggest brand and a founding father of the mountain bike industry. Specialized make high quality bikes from little shredders for the kids all the way through to high powered ebikes and classics like the Stumpjumper.
- Turbo Levo Comp Alloys - S2, S3, S4, S5 and S6
- Turbo Levo SL Gen 2 - S2, S3, S4 and S5
- Stumpjumper (NOT Evo) - S2, S3, S4 and S5
Forbidden - High Pivot Witchcraft
Inspired by the terrain that surrounds their home on Vancouver Island, even naming the company after the Forbidden Plateau - the local riding spot - should go some way to explaining Forbiddens intentions as a mountain bike brand. The year-round riding conditions experienced coupled with the sheer variety of trails on offer have given Forbidden the ideal location to design and develop cutting edge mountain bikes.
We are big fans of Transition here at Biketreks and we are happy to finally add them to the fleet. Offering only full suspension bikes, Transition are committed to supplying high performance bikes that can do anything from cross country lapping to the burliest downhill courses.
“Live it like it’s the only thing you want to do.” - Chris Cocalis (founder)

At Hope they strive to keep every process of production in-house to ensure complete control. If they need to learn a new processes, they'll apply their years of engineering experience and spend time with experts in the field until they perfect a process. This leads to them producing some of the highest quality engineered bikes in the industry.
With all of our bikes parts are mostly interchangeable so if you're after trying a particular set of forks / wheels / groupset / bars / brakes / shock on a bike then we can where possible set it up to have those things on it.
Sometimes we can get other sizes and models off our suppliers but bear in mind that there are over 40 dealers after the same set of bikes so it's not always possible but we will try.
All demo bookings must be paid for at the time of booking, and if you subsequently buy a bike from us after the demo (within 3 months) we will refund you the £100 demo fee.
To inquire about a demo bike or to book one you'll need to give us a ring on 015394 31245 and select the Grizedale option.
Be warned, we will have a good chat with you to ensure you're genuinely looking at buying a bike and not just going on a Lake District jolly - we have hire bikes for that purpose!
