Spin Up In A Brewery. A day of bikes, beer & BBQ action.

Bikes, Beers and BBQ.

Dark Star Brew Co  & Kinesis Bikes UK are pleased to announce the return of this very popular event. After a sell-out and fun filled three years. Spin Up 2015 is looking even better whilst still bringing together all those that love to ride, race, drink and eat. All under one roof. And a brewery roof at that.

Saturday May 23rd 2015 - Dark Star Brewery - 1pm until 8pm



The 2015 Ride Outs

This is where you'll find details of the proposed Ride Outs to the Dark Star Brewery and other associated details such as transport and bike parking etc.

There are three routes to choose from:

MTB route  11am start The View Cafe, Hove, see: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6613906

Road Route  11am start The View Cafe, Hove, see: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6612736

Family and Leisure Route  Midday start Giant Store Shoreham, see: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6613912



The Ride Outs are intended as an informal way of getting groups together to head out rather than a signposted and supported 'Sportive'  type affair. They aren't guided so please familiarise yourself with the routes and come prepared. The rides will be a social speed but please check the routes carefully in case you decide to bomb ahead or trundle behind. Also please bring any tools, puncture repair stuff and water etc you may need as there will be no provision for this. 


Need us to take some spare kit / casual clothes up for you? Thanks to Rule 5 Bikes, a luggage van will be at the start of each ride out - you can then collect your bag when you arrive at the brewery. Left at own risk of course. If you have booked the return transport then there will be space within the coach for you to carry your luggage back with you. If you haven't then it will be your responsibility to carry your clothes back from the brewery after the event. 


Bike Parking

There will be bike parking within the brewery yard. Even though it will be pretty secure all bikes are left at the owners risk. If in doubt bring a lock or pack a lock with your spare clothes.




Getting back?

There are a few choices open to you for getting back. Of course it'll be sunny so you could ride home. Or get the coach back. 





The organisers of Spin Up don't encourage drinking and riding. If entrants are drinking, they are urged to take advantage of the coach transfers or seek alternative transport home.
