 Enjoy a wheelie fun family day out!

Enjoy a wheelie fun family day out!

There’s nothing better than spending time with the family, especially if it’s at an event that has so many benefits.

 Lincolnshire’s first Cycle Fest on Saturday, June 1, ticks all the boxes, so make sure you put the date in your diary or on your kitchen planner.

This event promises plenty for all ages to enjoy.  Cycling is fun, good for everyone’s health and wellbeing and it’s sustainable and eco-friendly.  Best of all Cycle Fest is FREE!

Based in the grounds of Doddington Hall – the day before the Giant Lincoln Sportive – the day will be packed with activities.

Cyclists can try out a pump bike track, saddle-up on an exciting virtual velodrome racing simulator and test out have-a-go KMX karts.  There are children’s mountain bike taster sessions too.

The day has been organised by Access Lincoln (which is supported by Lincoln BIG), North Kesteven District Council and Giant and features a treat for riders who want to go a little further.

They have the opportunity to join a led-ride and treasure hunt in Skellingthorpe Old Wood.  Giant will also have demonstration bikes available at the event for people to use on the ride and they will be providing free bike safety checks.

 ccess Lincoln is a Lincolnshire County Council initiative and, in addition to being supported by Lincoln BIG, is funded by the Department of Transport.

Access Lincoln project co-ordinator Alison Mackfall said: “With cycling becoming more and more popular, we thought the time was right for the county to have its very own Cycle Fest.

“With so much on offer, it will appeal to both cycling fanatics and those wanting to find out what all the fuss is about.

“There’s a lot of other entertainment planned too, which means this is the ideal family day out to round off half-term week.”

North Kesteven District Council Strategic Leisure Contract Manager Tony Mabbott said:  “One of the council’s corporate priorities is to improve the health, wellbeing and sustainability of the district.  We are committed to working with partners such as Access Lincoln to achieve this.
