The perfect combination? Spin Up In A Brewery mixes cycling and… beer

Roller racing event at the Dark Star Brewery in Sussex

A joint event taking place on 9 June and sponsored by Kinesis Bikes and the Dark Star Brewery in Partridge Green, Sussex, Spin Up In A Brewery lets you compete for prizes or just spectate.

The competition consists of knock-out rounds of static bike roller racing, culminating in the grand finals an eliminator race between the fastest eight riders at the end of the afternoon.
