Hot on the heels of the heroics of Bradley Wiggins & Co, York’s third Festival of Cycling will take place on 8th and 9th of September.
Aimed at discerning cycling fans and budding cyclists alike, each year 10,000 people descend on Rowntree Park to be entertained by professional cycle stunt demonstrations and KMX racing. The festival also indexes heavily on ‘have-a-go’ sessions offering free trial rides on the full spectrum of weird and wonderful pedal powered machinery.
The human scalextric is always a guaranteed crowd pleaser with up to four friends able to test their pedaling prowess in any one race.
This year the festival will also feature other sustainable modes of transport including displays of the latest electric vehicles in the market.
For those looking to take to two wheels of their own, York’s top cycle retailers will be showcasing their latest ranges with the opportunity to buy on the spot.
Admission and events are free for all across the two days.
