Demo-licious Days Bike Demo
Add a Demo Shuttle Wristband to your ticket to test out this season’s tastiest bikes

Though you can bring your own bike to Plaid Goat, you can also add a Demo Shuttle Wristband onto the general ticket to test the Fest’s bikes and catch a lift to the trailhead. Think of the average daily cost to rent ONE bike alone ($75-$150). The Demo Shuttle Wristband saves you money, provides access to way more than one bike & gives you shuttle love to trailheads throughout the valley!

Last year’s brands included: Cannondale, Commencal, Evil (via Rebound Cycle), Ibis, NorcoRocky Mountain, PivotScott, Specialized, etc.

The 2018 Demo Shuttle Wristband cost only:

  • $20/day
  • $30/weekend

See the list of 2018 Plaid Goat brands here.

Friday will be the Demo “Sneak a Peek” so you can set your tick list, get sized up and have your weekend organized to make the most of your demo time. Saturday and Sunday will be the actual Demo-licious Days.

While there will be a lot of bikes at the event, they’re on a first come first served basis. So, if there’s a specific bike you’d like to try – please come early. Each vendor will determine how long you can take a bike on a ride for, but the most common duration will be 1-2 hours. To help ensure everyone has a chance to try all of the bikes, we ask that you don’t hold onto a bike while you get lunch or take a break.

What to bring if you’re demo’ing bikes:

  1. A wicked stoke for what’s ahead. You’ll get to test out amazing bikes on some of Canada’s most treasured trails.
  2. ID and credit card so you can take out a bike.
  3. PEDALS – please bring your own pedals.
  4. Bear spray – the Canmore Nordic Centre requires anyone riding their trails to do so with bear spray (please also know how to use it).
  5. A helmet, riding shoes, sunglasses, hydration (a pack or bottles), bike pump, multi-tool, spare tube(s) and whatever you would typically ride with.
