Cycle Touring Festival 2016 – What’s on?

Cycle Touring Festival 2016
Waddow Hall, Clitheroe, Lancashire

Don’t miss out on a ticket to the years premier cycle touring event. 2015 saw the birth of the UK’s first cycle touring festival. Read my review of last years inaugural festival here and grab your ticket for this years event below.

There are just FIVE WEEKS left to buy tickets

27-30 May Cycle Touring festival 2016 tickets here.

Ticket sales will close on Saturday 30 April, unless they’re all sold out before then.

We have expanded the capacity this year because we hated having to turn people away last year – but once again tickets have sold well and we recommend you act fast if you haven’t yet bought your ticket.

What to expect from the Cycle Touring Festival 2016

  • Talks, workshops and films, to inspire and equip you to undertake journeys by bicycle.  Have a look at some our fabulous speakers here.
  • Plenty of time to socialise with like-minded people, in a beautiful riverside setting, with great food.
  • Shelter from the infamous Lancashire rain!  All of the sessions are indoors (or at least in a marquee).

What the Cycle Touring Festival is not

  • We are not a trade fair.  We will have a couple of stands from retailers, but this is to give you the chance to get your bike and kit questions answered, rather than the hard sell.
  • We are not a commercial, money-making venture.  The festival is organised by volunteers who all have full time jobs, and is entirely non-profit making.
  • Very big!  We deliberately keep numbers relatively small, to retain a sense of community and to ensure the festival remains personal.

 What happens over the weekend?

  • Registration will open on Friday night at 6pm.  There will be food available to buy and the bar will be open.  There will be an informal ‘getting to know each other’ session, but the main event won’t kick off until Saturday morning, so don’t worry if you can’t get there until late.
  • Saturday and Sunday will be filled with talks and workshops.  Your ticket price includes breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, plus dinner on Saturday evening and plenty of other (cake-based) sustenance throughout the weekend.
  • For those who choose to stay over on Sunday evening, we’ll aim to head out for a ride on Monday, to explore some of the incredible cycling that the Ribble Valley offers.
