The Bristol Cycle Festivalposted on 4 July 2012 | posted in Bristol Bike Blog
To celebrate the cities cycling culture, next week is The Bristol Cycle Festival.
The event is in it's third year and includes such activities as speed dating on bikes, a micro-sportive that climbs a notorious local hill no less than four times, theatre, poetry, street games and a two wheeled drive in cinema.
This is now an annual festival and events can be organised by anyone in the cycling community.
Of course, no cycle festival would be complete without a bike ride or two, and there are several to choose from:
Bike Train to Work - join a group of riders on one of the main commuting routes into town.
Discover Bristol Rides - explore hidden corners of the city via a mix of quiet roads and cycle paths.
Get in the Swim - a gentle, mostly traffic free ride to Portishead open air pool.
Silver Cyclists, Bike Minded and Bike Generation - rides for older cyclists, people who suffer from mental health issues and under-15s.

Festival programmes, t-shirts and information are all available at The Hub, located at the showroom at 31 College Green. The Hub opens all week from midday and hosts Dr Bike free maintenance classes and the Cycle Craft Collective as well as providing food.
