Get on your bike and celebrate the city of cycling
Often named Britain’s Cycling City, it seems only right that Cambridge’s love of our trusty pedal-powered two-wheelers should be celebrated. Which is exactly what this month’s Festival of Cycling, organised by local charity Camcycle, is all about. Running throughout September, the festival includes many cycling-oriented events including a family-friendly picnic ride, cargo bike parade, cycling to work conference, family cycling day, film night, women’s cycling event, and the chance to try Victorian cycle wear.
Roxanne De Beaux, Executive Director of Camcycle said, “The Camcycle team of staff and volunteers have been working hard to bring to life our long-held dream of a cycling festival in Cambridge. Our events will embrace the everyday cycling culture in Cambridge and encourage even more people to experience the joy of cycling. As part of our celebration we’ll be showcasing the cargo bikes used by Cambridge families and businesses, celebrating our gender-equal rates of cycling and sharing the best practices used by local employers to support their staff who cycle to work.”
Most of the events will be free; some will have a minimal charge to cover costs and help raise funds for Camcycle. Visit the website for the full programme.
