Come join us on the of 1st June to celebrate the Unbound race that's being held the same weekend in the States by riding the Shimano Rebound 2024. 

We've partnered up with Shimano UK to bring you Rebound to your doorstep! We've also got Trek and Castelli Cycling on board helping us with some goodies for all participants!

Come to OE Bikes and ride one of our suggested routes or make up your own. Choose to ride 57km's, 120km, or a combined 177km's route to test your gravel skills and strength. Free food provided to any participants that have pre-registered! Make sure you arrive back at OE Bikes between 2 and 6pm to get your free food.

Shimano Techs will be on hand to check your bike over free of charge and give some inside gear knowledge about their excellent GRX groupset.

Trek will be in store showing off some of their renowned gravel products including the Checkpoint SL and SLR bikes and range of great accessories for all your gravel needs. They might be giving away some stuff for free?!

Castelli needs no introduction and will be on hand to offer advice and information on their range of high performance clothing and accessories like the Unlimited range designed for gravel and trail riding.

Throughout the day we will have catering on site to get yourself a coffee or snack. Rider's will be treated to a free burger and chips post ride. Show us your km's and eat away.

This is a free event! Ride on your own or with friends. There will be no marking or on route support just like Unbound.
