We’re closing the roads to traffic in Leicester on Sunday 25 August and hosting a free cycling festival for everyone.
There’s lots to do – from fun activities and challenges for the whole family to music, local street food and live stunt shows. Plus a few surprises on the day …
Come along and enjoy seeing your city from the saddle. You don’t have to do the full distance – just as much or as little as you want. You don’t need to be an experienced cyclist. There will be no cars on the road, so you can wobble, zig-zag and stop as much as you like.
It’s free, fun and the perfect activity for the whole family. So, what are you waiting for?
Everyone’s invited – see you there!
