New bikes are hitting the shops but you don't want to buy a new rig without riding it first. That's where the Bikemagic Demo Day Guide comes in - your listing of the times and places around the UK where you can take a new bike out for a spin and choose your new machine on the basis of some real-world testing.

We're only just getting this going for 2013 so if you are a shop owner and have a demo day, send it in and we'll feature it here.
