Reading Cycle Festival set for Sunday 9 June

Join us for the Reading Cycle Festival to be held at Thames Valley Park on Sunday 9 June.

It will be a fun day out for all the family, designed to get more people onto bicycles and enjoying the fantastic trails and footpaths in and around Reading.

Sponsored by Avanti Cycling, it will be held at the height of summer and promises to be a colourful affair, with marquees, exhibitor gazebos and picnic areas.

Cycle shops will have demo bikes for you to try out and local clubs will explain how you can get involved in local rides and other cycling activities.

The health benefits as well as tax breaks for cycling will be explained by different organisations.

You will have the chance to take part in various activities and will also have the opportunity to get information and advice on how to enjoy the world of cycling.

Activities will include starter mountain bike training, rides on a pump track (a series of bumps and corners) and several other fun events.

If you have trouble maintaining your bike, come along for free advice from friendly on-site mechanics.
