  • Hope Demo Day

    We were super lucky with the weather on our Hope demo day, trails were running sweet & customers were able to demo the bikes to their full potential. Hope brought along the original 3D printed models & prototypes used in the evolution of the HB160 & it was great talking to Sam, who as one of their world cup mechanics knew everything there was to know, not just about the frames but all the Hope own kit used to build up the bike. The bike certainly seemed to excel in the Surrey Hills & …

  • Slippy Slidey Saturday ride

    The conditions were unbelievably wet & slippery, but we had a fab time. By picking our route carefully & sticking to Leith Hill where the riding remains good all year round, we managed to have one of the best rides of the year so far. We went back to practising some basic techniques ie. log jumping, which sounds simple, but can be quite tricky. Matt managed to take a nice video of all the shenanigans.

  • Nirvana Sunday ride 30.10.16

    The trails were in primo condition for both the Saturday jump ride & the Sunday ride. Here's a nice little video of the guys riding a newly discovered trail called 'Uncle Albert'. The beauty of riding in the Surrey Hills is that you never get bored, always fresh, always fun!

  • Fat Bikes can jump

    Paul & Dave turned up on their Fat Bikes for the Saturday jumpy practice ride & managed to get a bit of air. Will then showed them how to do it on 'The jump with no name'. He also succeeded it getting a massive amount of distance over at 'Toad Hall'.

  • Nirvana Cycles Freeride practice

    Summer has finally arrived & what a fantastic day to be out on the bikes. We headed over to Simon's new trails & got some jump practice in. Dave, Wayne & Russell were fairly new to jumping but made amazing progress with Russell topping it off by showing how not do it at the end. Luckily he was ok & soon got back into the swing of things.

  • A Great Sunday ride

    The weather was ideal for the ride today & a good number turned up, with a few newcomers joining in. The trails were running sweet & we hit the singletrack on Ranmore & Mickleham predominantly. Taking in Reformation, Rip van Winkle, Pink socks, Batrun & many more I can't remember. Got a nice little video of some of the guys hitting the last jump on Reformation. The best bit though was stopping off at Grant's for Pizza from his pizza oven. doesn't get any better, thanks Grant.& …

  • Lapierre Zesty 527 first Sat ride

    As Simon was covering in the shop for an absent Rowan, who spent the weekend at 'Desertfest' which looks like a fun music bash in Camden. Dan 'Air' stepped up to the plate & led the freeride practice ride. There was a decent turn out which included Matt, taking his newly purchased Lapierre Zesty 527  on it's inaugural ride. Below, you can see the fruits of his labour with the moral of the story being, buy a Lapierre Zesty 527 (£3149 carbonframe, 150mm travel) from Nirvana cycles & …
