To celebrate the end of British Cycling Week, parts of Winchester will be transformed into a hive of cycling activity. Attractions and entertainments include roller racing, a mountain bike display team, BMX skills, a cycle treasure hunt, bike decorating, smoothie bike and toddler trikes throughout the afternoon, not to mention a comedy unicycling policeman.
Meanwhile a ‘Bike Bus’ will lead cyclists along the National Cycle Network across the beautiful Hockley Viaduct to a new cycle track at the South Winchester Park and Ride, where British Cycling will host some fun cycle skills lessons. And of course there will also be a host of cycling stalls, including free security bike marking. It all takes place between noon and 4pm on June 23.
Later in the summer Winchester will be hosting its family-friendly sportive on Saturday August 10, and then on Sunday August 11 there is the Family Cycle Day, rounded off by the Winchester Criterium.
