Cambridge Festival of Cycling returns this September, with Camcycle working hard alongside a variety of partners to bring together more than 20 cycling-themed events.
There will also be multiple social rides, plus bike maintenance sessions, a photography workshop, a film night and even some Shakespeare from the HandleBards, a troupe of cycling actors. The flagship event is the Cargo Carnival, the chance to join a “happy parade of cyclists as you show the city of Cambridge what can be carried on a bike – from pizza to puppies!”.
Join a happy parade of cyclists who show Cambridge what can be carried on a bike
Departing from Lammas Land at 11am on 21 September, the peloton tours the city centre before returning to a fair with food and drink, a cargo bike try-out arena and other bike stalls.
Also look out for the CamcyleQuest: a cycling treasure hunt by Camcycle and Tees, which offers a chance to find out more about Cambridge and explore cycle routes with family and friends. If you collect all the answers to the clues, you could win some great prizes.
Over at the Museum of Technology, they’ll be exploring the techy side of cycling on the 7th. You can hear from a range of speakers and enjoy tasty food, virtual reality bike races, bicycle-themed crafts and a gears workshop.
