Do you have to register for this or just turn up on the day? Tried Google and the specialized website with no luck...

For previous Specialized ride days you didn't have to book, you just turned up. The downside to this is that if you are after a popular frame size you may have to wait for someone to come back from their test ride, so make sure you have plenty of time up your sleeve.

Did anyone else get out and test anything? Having never been to anything like that before I was quite impressed. Probably wouldn't buy anything I rode but was an interesting exercise.

I test rode the S-Works Stumpjumper Hardtail 29er, it was great! My next bike will be a carbon hardtail 29er, I just have to save up a few more pennies!

There were plenty of people there testing everything, the guys at the tent were looking a little bit frazzled (I guess that's to be expected when it's busy) but it was all moving along in an orderly fashion.

Really wanted to get out there but didn't get around to it. I had already burned half a tank of petrol in 2days ferrying the family around and couldn't justify using more to get to SFP only to test bikes I will never be able to afford :P.

I was a bit the same - my best cycling friend is mad about Specialized, they're all he buys now. But the choice for me was to go and have a great ride on my bike that I've only had 5 weeks, or go and drool over bikes that I couldnt afford, and wouldnt be suitable for me at the moment anyway. It was an easy choice.
