Bicester bike day puts wheels in motion for fifth year
Bicester’s annual ‘Bike and Family Fun Day’ is confirmed to take place at the Annex Field of Bicester Community College (behind Bicester Leisure Centre) on Sunday 24 July between 10.00am and 3.00pm.
Now in its fifth year, the ‘Bicester Bike and Family Fun Day’ has something for everyone, whether you’re a budding cyclist or new to the pedals.
The free event, which is open to all, starts at 10.00am with the ‘Tour de Bicester’ family cycle around town, with participants collecting answers from points along the route which will be used to complete a Bicester themed quiz at the final leg to claim their medal. Afterwards, the main event kicks off from 11am and runs until 3pm.
Louise Caves, A2Dominion’s Strategic Partnership Manager for NW Bicester, said: “Now in its fifth year, we are really looking forward to igniting the community spirit once again for the Bicester Bike and Family Fun Day. There will be a variety of biking activities on the day, as well cyclo-cross racing with a challenging new course, balance ability for little ones just getting started, a climbing wall, penalty shoot-out and a ladies Breeze ride.
“The event really does offer something for everyone in the local community – not just avid cyclists. For those that are just wanting to enjoy a fun filled family day out, there will also be a number of other activities on the day including face painting, crafts, a toddlers’ inflatable activity centre and a BBQ.
“We are always looking for ways to encourage people to live healthier lifestyles and Bicester Bike and Family Fun Day is a fun way for us to do this. We are delighted to be teaming up with Bicester Leisure Centre again and supporting the Cycling Sportive for another year.”
Riders taking part in the Cycling Sportive event can sign up* early and get a discount (£26 in advance or £30 on the day), setting off at 7.30am so riders can be back to join the rest of the day events.
