If you’re looking to fill your families summer calendar with fun events, you need to check out CycleFest.
Have you ever heard of CycleFest before?
If you haven’t its run by Experience Freedom who have created not one, not two, but THREE amazing family cycle events this Summer. They’re called ‘CycleFest’ and they are set over different bank holiday weekends starting with the ‘Scottish Wanderer’, which is held in Kelson in Scotland on May the 6th.
Next up will be the ‘National Wanderer’ which will be held in Sledmere in Yorkshire on May the 28th and lastly is the ‘Welsh Wanderer’ which will be held in Monmouth in Wales on August the 26th.
Which one is closer to you?
Even better, by registering for any one of the events, you get automatically entered into an amazing competition where you have the chance to win a family holiday to France. How cool does that sound?
So, what Is CycleFest and why will your family love it?
As a family we love being outside. Our weekends are spent hiking, riding, walking, swimming and having BBQs in the great outdoors. Living in the countryside, there is no better way to spend the weekend, than soaking up the views on a family bike ride or watching the sunset with a a BBQ. Being outdoors together is our favourite way to be as a family. It’s the perfect way to escape the rat race of work and a busy home life. That’s why we love the idea of CycleFest so much.
CycleFest has been designed to get you and your family out on your bikes and having fun together. Entry to CycleFest gives you access to the National which is hosted by the Caravan and Motorhome Club.
At each event there will be a family cycle route. This route is ideal for everyone from very young riders, to those young-at-heart adults we all know. Alongside the family cycle routes, there will also be two challenging sportive routes. This is for the more experienced cyclists who fancy a bit of competition. There will also be medals and prizes, plus so much more.
Alongside cycling, there will also be plenty of activities to get stuck into. As well as a cycling village featuring trade stands, there will be cycling test tracks and bike demos with some of the top cycling brands. There will also be lots of free family fun for kids and grown-ups too.
Expect to see:
- Fun family shows throughout the day and night.
- Delicious street food.
- Stalls and traders.
- Craft areas and competitions.
- Fun areas such as ‘Segways’ in the ‘Have a go’ area.
Oh and there will even be a Garden Party to celebrate the Royal Wedding.
You can either visit for the day or make a weekend of it and grab a pitch and stay. We completely recommend the latter!
Who Is Experience Freedom
CycleFest is being brought to us by Experience Freedom, a ‘luxury style’ accommodation company. Experience Freedom is run by the Caravan and Motorhome club (formerly the Caravan club). They have accommodation in some of the most beautiful locations in the UK and their accommodations include self-contained camping and glamping pods, as well as canvas yurts that have rustic wooden furniture and soft home comforts. Just reading that is convincing me to stay at CycleFest for the whole weekend.
Imagine cosying up in a comfort yurt after a fun day of cycling with your family?
The thing I love the most about Experience Freedom is that they are on a mission to offer family fun experiences that encourage people to get close to nature, but in a place where they can unwind in style and comfort.
Doesn’t this look like such a great opportunity for you, your friends and your family to get on your bikes together and start cycling?
