Stockton Cycle Festival

The first Stockton Cycling Festival will take place on July 16th and 17th 2011 and will give all people and abilities a chance to get involved.
There will be two main events - the Sportive Challenge on July 16th will be a mass participation and non-competitive event in which people can cycle anything from 30 miles to 100 miles. On July 17th, there will be a series of races on a traffic free circuit for everyone to become involved.
The festival will close with an elite race, giving people the opportunity to see at close hand a dramatic and fast-moving race by riders battling at high speeds on a tight street circuit.
There will be a chance to try lots of different bikes, learn to unicycle or have a go at stunt riding or join in on a virtual bike challenge.
Sustrans staff from The Hub, in Stockton will offer advice on bike choice, what to wear, local cycle routes avaliable in Stockton, or a bike checkup from Dr Bike.  There will also be guided walks and bike orienteering to help riders to discover new places.

The Darlington Sustrans Ranger are organising a ride to this event for the Sunday - The 17th of July.

We will meet in the Market Square in Darlington at 9:00am, and follow the well marked (and gentle on the legs) NCN route 14 to take us to the Stockton Riverside, a distance of around 14 easy miles. As the event will last until 4:00pm, we will meet up again at this time for the ride back.

If you would like to join us you can contact us here - using the E-Mail link or through the forum -

p.s. It’s time to delete the spam fellows !!!!

Cheers Richard - I've also put a post about Darlovelo rides on there. Regretfully, it looks like I hit the road again for a couple of weeks and then out the UK for a while.
