A big 'THANK YOU' to everyone who participated in Bromswold Bike Fest on 14 June 2014. We raised the magnificent sum of £4692.86!
Around 230 cyclists of all ages and cycling ability took part, with around 100 completing the 25 and 50 mile routes. The organisers were delighted with the turnout, everyone really enjoyed the day and there was a wonderful atmosphere. We've had many positive comments about the event, and so we are organising another Bike Fest in 2015 - the date for your diaries is Saturday 13 June!
There will be a new website coming soon with information on new routes, how to register and pre- and post ride refreshments and entertainment. In the meantime if you want to get a flavour of what Bromswold Bike Fest is all about, then take a look at this site.
2014 is an important year for cycling in Cambridgeshire – Cambridge has the Tour de France, and on Saturday, 14 June 2014 we are organising a ‘Tour de West Cambridgeshire’. Our aim is to get as many people as possible from Leighton Bromswold and the surrounding area on a bike and to ride one of the cycle routes planned (2, 7, 15, 25 and 50 miles). So whether you are new to cycling, a family group or a keen cyclist, there is a route for you.
And it’s not just about cycling – the Bike Fest is also about fun, food and entertainment. Fete style games, beer, BBQ and refreshments, jazz and blues music will all be happening during the afternoon and evening around The Green Man, Leighton Bromswold.
In addition to encouraging people to get on a bike, discover the local countryside and the health benefits of cycling, Bromswold Bike Fest will raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, Samuel Pepys Special Needs School and Holly Ward at Hinchingbrooke Hospital. We’re not charging an official entry fee to participate but instead a suggested donation to help us raise money for these great causes. (£5 per person or £10 for a family group)
