Bristol Cycle Festival returning for seventh year


12 September 2017




The Bristol Cycle Festival, the annual celebration of everything to do with two wheels, is returning to the city this month.

Starting on Saturday, September 16th, the festival will bring nine days of bike-themed events including the muscle-sapping Dundry Drubber Sportif and the Instagram-friendly Vintage Velo retro ride.

New this year will be a pedal-powered film screening and the introduction of new workshops addressing issues facing cyclists in Bristol, under the banner of ‘Take Action’.

For anyone looking for love there will be the chance to find like-minded singletons at Cycle Speed Dating or even on a surprise tandem ride.

There will be events for cargobikes and trikes, a women-only ride to the Malago Greenway, a safari supper ride and plenty of other events to expose riders to routes in the city they may not have considered.

So whether you’re a weekend cyclist, pedal for sport or use your wheels to get to work there is likely to be an event for you in the extensive programme.

For full details of the festival’s programme see their official website.
