Power output battle at Spin Up 14 anyone?
Kick starting every Spin Up are the wonderful Ride Outs, taking in both Sussex lanes and Sussex Downs, both on-road and off, for all abilities. We're tinkering with new routes this year to keep things varied but we'll be keeping the Free Drink tokens, you'll be pleased to hear.
These were a real hit last year and added an extra dimension to the rides. We'll be placing these tokens at various points along both the road and off-road routes. The challenge is to find them. Do you go fast to try and find the tokens first but risk missing them. Or slowly so you can hunt them out more carefully, but at the risk of someone getting there before you? Free pints are at stake.
Previously the Ride Outs have started on Brighton seafront but we'll be changing this year to take in Brighton's newest cycle shop and very first cycle cafe.
The MTB ride out will be starting from Rule 5 Bikes.
The Road ride out will be starting at Velo Cafe.
For the latest information please keep checking The Ride Outs page.
We're honoured to have Andy Annat coming back to Spin Up and to use his world class BBQ skills once more!
There will also be Roman style pizza from the new Lewes street food specialist Pleb Pizza.
Seriously, we need to make these Ride Outs longer and the roller racing more intense just so you can make room for all this.
The creator of exceptional big, brash and bold bakes, Mr Bake, will be at Spin Up '14. If you've not tried any of their awesome creations then you are seriously missing out. Well, not if you are coming along to Spin Up In A Brewery that is, where you'll be able to make up for all those lost calories from the ride out. Re-fuelling has never been so good.
Very excited to announce that these boys are coming back to Spin Up 2014! They have also written a song specially for beer lovers called `Bottoms Up` which they will play too.
Saturday 24th May. Get it in the diary!
