Having been stocking the Turbo levo power assist bikes for a while now, we finally had a chance to get our hands on the Demo fleet from Specialized UK, and get some of our customers who had been enquiring about the bikes out riding them to see for themselves what they are capable of!
Due to our location in the Surrey Hills, we were spoilt for choice on location, but settled on Holmbury St Mary, in our eyes the perfect place to put these amazing bikes to the test – a great network of authorised sandy trails, good elevation change, and riding straight from the car park!
Ride one started at around 10am, and saw a group of six riders led by Ryan and Dave off up to tackle the well known ‘Barry knows Best’, ‘Telegraph Row’, ‘Yoghurt Pots’ and many others. It was great to see everyone enjoying the bikes and raving about the performance! Huge thanks to Nic, James, Richard and Neil for attending and giving great feedback following their ride!
Ride two started a bit later in the day and saw Ryan and Dave head off to the Pitch Hill area accompanied by Dave, Tom and Slava, all of whom came back to the van having been well impressed by the bikes capabilities and amazed at the distance they had covered in a relatively short ride – The ability to ride any trail, link up all of the best bits of the surrey hills in one ride, and enjoy the climbs, what more could you want?
A huge thanks to Specialized UK for supplying the bikes, Ryan and Dave for leading the ride outs, and to everyone who attended for being such great company, Thanks also to John and Extra UK for supplying all the riders with Clif bars throughout the day.
