Looking to demo a Cotic bike? You're in the right place.
Sam is out every week in the Ay-up Team Van - Black Betty - helping people to try out our bikes, organising both Open Demos and Exclusive Ride Days. The whole idea is that we bring the demo to you.
We are organising plenty of fairly conventional 'Rock up and Ride' Open Demos around the country - you can check where and when on the calendar below - but the key is that we're combining this with Exclusive Ride Days, just for you and your mates.
If you ride with a group or club and your members would like their own Exclusive Ride Day, Sam is more than happy to come and join you. We've had a few people approach us from various groups and it's a great way to vary your regular ride.
All our demos - including our Exclusive Ride Days - are totally free, and it doesn't have to be with an official club or group. If you and your mates fancy a private demo, we will bring the bikes to you. Just let us know where you ride and what bikes you'd like to try and we can get something planned. Just bring your riding kit, pedals, some photo ID and collateral to leave with us, and we'll take your email so we can keep in touch.
Although we will be touring our dealers as well, and doing plenty of Open Demos, you don't have to wait for that. Just get in touch and we'll work something out. Email, phone and webform details are all further down the page. Get involved, we can't wait to hear from you.
