Adventure Cycling Festival Ambleside 1st & 2nd September 2018

Hope everyone is having a good summer and getting out on their bikes.

We are excited to be back at the Adventure Cycling Festival 2018.

1st and 2nd of September. Brathay Hall Ambleside

Tickets can be bought here

Tickets for the festival are £12 for either day or £20 for the weekend.

The festival now in its second year, is a lot of fun. Lots of demo bikes, talks about cycling, music, activities such as bush craft and pack rafting.

Bambino Biking will be there for the weekend.

On Saturday we will have the demo fleet set up for test rides at Brathay around the test track.

On Sunday, festival goers will be able to hire for free the Bambino demo kit with bikes and head off for their own adventure.

You can do your own thing or we can drop you off at Red Nab Car Park so you can explore the West Shore of Windermere. We will do a pick up later in the day at Wray Castle or you can make your own way back to Brathay.

We will confirm the exact times once we know numbers but we imagine setting off from Brathay at 10am and picking up around 3pm from Wray Castle. There is a great adventure playground at the castle you can use for free, entry to the castle is free for National Trust members. You can of course just do your own thing and collect things from Saturday evening ready for Sunday.

Chris from Bambino Biking will be there all weekend to give advice on different set ups for family cycling. Chris set up Bambino Biking to help other families get out cycling with their kids. He’s done various cycle trips with his family and spent two and half years cycling from New Zealand to the UK with his wife Liz (before the kids came along!). Chris hopes to do another big trip with his kids in the next few years.
