    21st Birthday Celebration Demo Day

    On Sunday 24th May Blazing Saddles will be 21 years old!

    Demo Rides All Day

    That’s quite an achievement for a small local independent business and we’d like to say thank you to all our customers over the years who’ve supported us and helped make us what we are today. Thanks folks! So we’re having a party to celebrate, and part of the day will be organized  demo rides on a range of great bikes from Orange Mountain Bikes and Specialized.

    Choose and Book your Demo Bike

    A full list of bikes can be found below. There will be 6 led rides during the day. Each ride will be a double trip, to enable you to compare two bikes on the same route one after the other. Obviously if you only want to try one bike, and ride one session,that’s fine.

    So look down the list and decide which bike or bikes you’d like to demo on the day, and choose which time slot you’d prefer. Then ring us to confirm and book .

    Celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire 2015

    Celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire 2015 with these cool decorative blue bikes, produced to raise money for a student involved in Projects Abroad, who are taking a group of Calder High VI form pupils to Sri Lanka in the summer of 2016.

    The students will be involved in a mix of education programmes and renovation/painting activities in local schools and care centres for two weeks. The group is working completely voluntarily and each student is raising money to fund their trip, and to cover the necerssary charges made by Projects Abroad such as organisation of the placements, accommodation, transport costs etc.

    blue bikes

    The bikes are on sale in Blazing Saddles right now. Each bike costs £5.  All the profits from the blue bikes goes to support Alex Hutchinson’s personal funding challenge, to volunteer out in Sri Lanka for two weeks, working with disadvantaged children and orphans. Cash would be preferred as the money will be collected in a charity container.
