The Blackhill Blast News(April 23, 2010)
After thinking about this for a long time we have decided to cancel the 'blackhill blast' this year. This was a hard decision after the success of last years event but we have not had the time to put the work into the event we would have liked due to the opening of the new Dorchester store.
But fret ye not. The test bikes are still coming down and will be available to try out over the weekend of 1st - 3rd May.
We have sorted a nice 7 mile(ish) route from our new Dorchester store and Dangerous Dan and T P have offered to ride along with anyone wishing to test the bikes out. You can also take the bikes out on your own if you prefer but we must ask you to bring along proof of id and a credit card.
We have bikes from Giant, Scott, Lapierre and hopefully more, available and the added bonus of running the test bikes from the store is that we will also have a selection of road bikes to test ride. A full list of bikes and sizes will be put up on this site early next week.
This will not be the end of the Blackhill Blast as it will be back stronger than ever next year and should there be enough interest we may run an event from the site later in the year. Let us know what you think.
