Guildford Cycle Festival returns for second year

Paralympic gold medalist Rachel Morris

Paralympic gold medallist Rachel Morris will be the star turn this Sunday (18 Aug) as the Guildford Cycle Festival returns following the success of last year’s event.

Visitors will have the opportunity to take part in a host of events designed for riders of all ages and abilities, including guided bike rides around scenic routes and the adventurous cycle roller challenge, Rollapaluza. There will also be the chance to ask questions to cycling experts about road safety and how to make the most of your bike.

As well as advice and tips from expert cyclists, qualified cycling instructors and demonstrations there will also be a display by mountain bike stunt team Savage Skills. Finally, the festival will host the start and finish of Action Medical Research’s Surrey100 charity bike ride.

The free, family-friendly festival is part of the Surrey County Council’s Travel SMART scheme, which aims to promote healthier and more eco-friendly methods of transport.

The festival will take place at:

Northgate, Stoke Park, GU1 1UP

10am to 5pm on Sunday 18 August.
