Festival of Cycling 2016
10am to 4pm. Everyone's favourite free cycling event!
The Festival of Cycling is back for a one-day special event in Rowntree Park on Sunday 11 September to coincide with SkyRide York.
York's favourite festival will be adjacent to the main SkyRide route so do pop in for a visit on your way around!
This is an event suitable for all ages and abilities from tots through to grandparents, and adapted bikes will be available for those with special needs. Have a go on all kinds of bikes and get pedalling!
For those whose love of cycling involves getting airborne and upside down at the same time The Airbag.net will also be waiting for you - if you dare to give it a try! Do bring your helmet. And we'll also have a special BMX display by Savage Skills.
North Yorkshire Police will bring their excellent Dot Peen property marking machinery so you can get your bike security marked for free to deter thieves; and cycle retailers are expected to attend so you can also shop while you pedal.
Refreshments and children's entertainment will also be available in the park.
