Bikes + beer = Spin up in a Brewery

Roller racing, music and barbecue in the Dark Star Brewery in West Sussex on Saturday, May 24

Beer, bikes and barbecue - what many would perceive as the perfect combination. And you can enjoy all of that at the Spin Up in a Brewery event at the Dark Star Brewery in West Sussex on Saturday, May 24, from 1-8pm

The event starts at 1pm, and will feature an afternoon of roller racing with 'impromptu competitions and prizes'. An electronic leaderboard will display the afternoon's fastest times, and there are even small bikes for riders aged 10 and up to take part.

British barbecue champion (it says here) Andy Annat will be providing gourmet food from the grill, with live music from the aptly named Puncture Kit and Grizzly & the Grasshoppers.

An optional ride to the brewery from Brighton will leave at 11am.

Entry costs £8, including a pint of Dark Star beer, or £13 including a return coach trip to Brighton.

The event is supported by Morvelo and Kinesis UK.

Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
