Get Your Demo On!

Sunday, February 11 is right around the corner and we're jacked! We're going to have some amazing bikes to ride on a fantastic chunk of land. Fingers crossed we get more snow!!


Final placement and dimensions may vary.

The demo course

The Surly Bikes Demo course - and the Surly Masher itself - will be built on Surly Brewing's Festival Field, a huge patch of undeveloped land behind the brewery.

The course itself won't be planned or created until the week of the event. While many great ideas have been bandied about, course design and features will depend on what the actual conditions are the week before Sunday, February 11.

FAQ: Demo Course


The demo bikes

Surly Bikes will be bringing the following models in a range of sizes for your demo pleasure!


Surly Pugsley


"Previously a great all-around fat bike, the Pugsley has been redesigned to be the ultimate off-road touring and exploration rig. Maximalist off-road tourists, explorers looking to get off the beaten path, and survivalists for whom being stranded isn’t an option will all appreciate Pugsley’s wider footprint, longer and more stable wheelbase, and plethora of accessory mounts."


Surly Wednesday

"The Wednesday is the result of over a decade of Omniterra design experience distilled into one steel package. It can easily ride over or through most anything our other Omniterra bikes can and then some. With Wednesday, we borrowed elements from some of our Trail and Touring models to create an Omniterra whip that can truly handle anything you want to attempt."


Surly Ice Cream Truck

"The Ice Cream Truck goes where most other bikes can’t. Snow, rocks, mud, sand — you name it, and chances are, someone has ridden it on an Ice Cream Truck. Don’t let that terrain-crawling ability fool you into thinking the Ice Cream Truck is slow and sluggish, though. A long top tube (best paired with a short stem) and short stays make it trail-approved and ready to rip."


The "Masher Bike"

You can also  win a customized Surly Wednesday: Masher Edition as a door prize or auction item.


Surly Wednesday: Masher Edition

Surly Bikes and Surly Brewing have teamed up create the "Masher Bike" – a single-speed stunner that can take you anywhere!


Bike Games

In addition to your standard standard demo course ride-around blah blah blah, Surly Bikes has promised to conduct some bike games at the top of each hour. What sorts of games, you ask? Sorry, we're keeping that cat in the bag. **Cough**DERBY**Cough**
