GT Bicycles Malverns Classic - 14th - 16th June 2019


After a successful event in 2018 the GT Bicycles Malverns Classic is back for 2019

14th / 15th / 16th June 2019
Eastnor Deer PArk, Ledbury

On grey, gloomy days like today it’s easy to start thinking (and planning) fun summer rides, routes and events. Following a visit today from the one of the organisers of the The Retro Run, talk turned today to the GT Bicycles Malverns Classic; an event that saw a reemergence this year and already has plans for a repeat event for next year.

Planned for the weekend of 14th - 16th June at Eastnor Deer Park in Ledbury, this fairly local event attracted big crowds this year, and claims that it is the biggest MTB festival in the UK. The event certainly has a jam packed itinerary that should have something for everyone!

For the racers among us there are a number of events to choose from, including dual slalom, enduro, quad eliminator, lake ride, downhill and cross country. Again, full details of the racing events and their formats can be found on the website.

Anyone that appreciates retro rides will highly approve of the WD-40 Retro Show & Shine event, that sees bikes manufactured in the 20th century being displayed and judged. The winner of the show will be gifted £1000 courtesy of WD-40, and there are also other goody bags up for grabs for particpants of this event.

Under 12’s go free, and tickets available include Day Passes and Weekend Passes with early bird prices available for those that book online and in advance. Full ticket pricing and details can be found online.

As well as racing, bike demos and a retro event you can also expect a number of awesome retailers and vendors on site. This year, for example, Malvern based jewellery designer Respoke Designs attended the event. They make incredibly beautiful jewellery for men and women from recycled bicycle spokes!
