Cycle Fest 2015

We are launching a brand new cycling festival to be held at Shirebrook Academy on Sunday 31 May 2015.

This exciting Cycle Fest event is being organised to promote the newly created Archaeological Way, which is a 11km multi-user trail that passes through some of the most beautiful countryside within Bolsover District.

The event will help promote awareness, access and opportunities to cyclists of all ages and abilities. The Council is inviting people to come along and experience a fun filled and action packed cycling festival and join in the guided rides of the Archaeological Way.

Cycle Fest is also part of The Big Bike Revival, a fun two weeks of family-friendly events taking place across the country from 23rd May - 7th June and designed to help you get that unloved bike back into use, learn how to look after it for yourself and rediscover how much fun cycling can be.

The Big Bike Revival is brought to you by CTC, the national cycling charity, which aims to inspire, encourage and help people of all ages and backgrounds to cycle safely, easily and happily.
The festival will also see expert team demos from within the cycling world including:
◾Extreme Wheels BMX Pro Demo Team of riders,
◾BMX Flatlander - four times UK and twice European Champion, Keelan Phillips,
◾Mountain Trials Demo Team with Ashley Butler - four times British and European champion;
◾Plus local Adam Morewood, current Trial Bike World, European and British champion

There will also be plenty of exciting ‘have a go’ activities for young and old to take part in, including:
◾Go-Ride coaching
◾BMX racing
◾KMX karts
◾BMX side hacks
◾Watt bikes
◾All ability bikes
◾Bling my bike
◾Fun bike races
◾Plus much more!

Dr Bike and Bike Maintenance workshops will also be on offer where you can get expert advice and assistance.

J.E. James, Todays Cyclist and Castle Cycles will be providing a cycling retail village with promotional stalls and stands offering a chance to get to know local cycling related businesses.

Whilst countryside organisations such as Derbyshire County Council Countryside and The National Trust will have displays and activities to get involved in.

Cycling clubs and cycling promotion organisations will be on hand to provide information to the keen cyclist.

If you want to slow the pace down a little, then you can enjoy cycling films and talks on offer in Shirebrook Academy’s 150 seat theatre, including ‘The Curious Case of Leonardo’s Bicycle, an illustrated talk by John Stuart Clarke (aka cycling cartoonist Brick).

Or for the more discerning cyclist, you can browse around our Retro and Vintage bike display.

This event is not to be missed if you and your family love cycling and want to have a great FREE day out! Don’t forget to bring your bike...

This event is being organised by the Council in partnership with Limestone Journeys (a landscape partnership project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund).
