Cyclefest comes to Daventry

People are being reminded that they have the chance to take part in a 10km circular guided cycle ride from Daventry Country Park to Welton this weekend.

Cyclefest 2013 is being held in Daventry Country Park on Saturday, August 3, from 11am to 3pm and aims to provide cycling experiences for people of all ages

The cycle ride is being led by an experienced cyclist from Daventry Cycle Club, and the route is generally on quiet roads and is a great way to explore around the Daventry and Welton area.

To take part in the guided ride cyclists can meet at the Daventry District Council stand in the Northern Field near the main entrance of the country park at 11.45am and the ride will start at 12pm. Children under the age of 16 must be supervised by an adult

There will also be lots of activities taking place during the day including bike set-up and checks, crazy bikes to try-out, a rickshaw, bike powered scalextric and smoothie maker, toddle bikes for the under 3s, guided rides, a ‘bike puzzle’ trail and lots more.

Cyclefest 2013 is being organised by Daventry District Council and its partners Northamptonshire Highways, Daventry and District Housing, Halfords, Joyride Cycles, Leisure Lakes, Daventry Mind and Daventry Cycle Club.
