We've put together an exciting schedule of MTB fun and frolics for Northern Grip 2016.
Tickets will secure you access to the Festival Hub where the main events are taking place. Here's the plan so far, we'll be announcing more details as we get closer to the date.
Friday 22nd July: Whether checking in for the weekend, pitching up a local campsite or popping out for the evening, join us for the opening party hosted by one of Ramsbottom finest independent pubs with DJs from Manchester's Funkademia. Although not officially open for business, if you're lucky enough to secure a ticket we'll let you know where to find us.
Saturday 23rd July: We will have a full day's MTB themed programme in our Festival Hub on Saturday, starting from 10am and running through to the small hours. There will be: - Chat and debate with industry bods and extraordinary riders - Showcases and demo bikes from Kona, Alpkit and Cotic - Trade stands and pop up shops - On site mechanics from our friends at Cooksons Cycles - Exclusive MTB films - Bike setup tips from the pros - Proper Northern food and drink (you'll deserve it) - Great live bands - DJs from Manchester's Funkademia club night Throughout the day we'll be encouraging you to get out onto the hills and ride your bikes (or a spanking new demo of course) where some special events will provide the perfect excuse to stop for a breather.
Sunday 24th July: Breakfast will be available back at the Festival Hub, then a Big Group Ride, showcasing the best of the area's riding to wake us all up and shake it all off. Go home tired and happy.
