National CycleFest, 27 May
As part of The National weekend, Experience Freedom from the Caravan and Motorhome Club is encouraging people to get active and on their bikes with its National CycleFest event on 27 May. Accredited by British Cycling and supported by Raleigh and Maxxis, CycleFest is designed for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy cycling.
There are two rides in the CycleFest, an 8km family route which can be completed on all types of bicycle including electric assisted, recumbent, road bikes and mountain bikes. The family route is ideal for younger riders and those looking for something less challenging. There are also two sportive routes offering a more demanding option for keener riders with a challenging 89km and less challenging 58km option in the standard sportive. Both the family and sportive rides take in spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
To enter the family ride costs from just £6.50 for adults over 17 years and £1 for under 16s. The standard sportive costs £25 for adults over 17 and £10 for under 16s and the challenging sportive costs £30 for adults over 17 and £10 for under 16s. On the day entries will be accepted for an additional £5.
As part of the entry fee, riders will also get access to a cycle demo area with some major bike brands, some great family activities including kids’ entertainment, food, drink and trade stalls making the whole day an action-packed family day out.
All visitors to the National and entrants of CycleFest will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a family-of-four 7 day cycling holiday in the Loire Valley, France worth £4,000, courtesy of Belle France.
