Bargain hunters, set your reminders now. On Sunday 8 March 2015 mountain biking legend Steve Peat is bringing his Bike Bonanza event to Bristol.
Taking the humble bike jumble up a few notches, the event is a massive sale of bikes, parts and riding kit from a mix of private sellers, retailers and sponsored riders. While it’s obviously impossible to say exactly what will be on offer, there are tales from previous events of ex-team bikes changing hands for half their RRP and lots more screaming bargains. If your garage is already bursting at the seams, you can also hire a table yourself.
The event takes place from 10 am – 2 pm at UWE Exhibition and Conference Centre, BS34 8QZ. Admission is £5 per person (£2.50 for under 14s, under 4s free). For more info or to book a sale space, check out http://www.peatysbikebonanza.co.uk/.
If that’s not enough excitement, on Saturday 7 March there’s also the chance to ride with the man himself . Head to the Pedal Progression shop at Ashton Court Golf Kiosk for 11 am. Then that evening there’s a film night and pub quiz at the Arnolfini, featuring footage from the excellent This Is Peaty online series. Tickets are £7.50 via Eventbrite.
