As a Sheffield based company we are proud of the city’s growing association with the outdoors industries. Sheffield has always had a strong association with the Peak District meaning this green city lives up to its growing reputation as The Outdoor City. So when we found out The Outdoor City team wanted Trail Advantage to show a visiting journalist from Cycling World Magazine and his family some of Sheffield’s local trails and the green corridor from the Peaks to the City, we thought it would be an ideal opportunity to get in touch with local bike makers Cotic, to see if we could borrow their Rocket Max demo to highlight the local trails with a fine local product.


Cotic are also a company that will stand by their product, Cotic head man Cy Turner is always on hand to answer any questions and is the driving force behind the company. Cotic also offer a demo service for their bikes. A fleet that includes all the models in the current line up. Sam is the Cotic demo man and is busy traveling the country to give riders the chance to try a Cotic for themselves. Richard Baybutt, Cotic’s marketing, photographer, rider, and all round top bloke explained a bit about the Cotic demo service to us.


“ Sam is out every week in the Ay-up Team Van – Black Betty – organising both Open Demos and Exclusive Ride Days. The whole idea is that we bring the demo to you.


We are organising plenty of fairly conventional ‘Rock up and Ride’ Open Demos around the country – you can check where and when on the calendar below – but the key is that we’re combining this with Exclusive Ride Days, just for you and your mates.


This is where Cotic offer something that’s a bit more in keeping with their friendly and customer focused approach.


If you ride with a group or club and your members would like their own Exclusive Ride Day, Sam is more than happy to come and join you. We’ve had a few people approach us from various groups and it’s a great way to vary your regular ride. Get in touch at and sign up to the mailing list at”
