New Website Showcases Bourne CiCLE Festival

Feb 26, 2019

A new website has launched for Bourne’s first CiCLE Festival later this year.

As activity builds towards the festival, organised by South Kesteven District Council, the web site – www.bourneciclefestival.com – will be constantly updated.   

It carries detail on the four major cycling events taking place over the weekend (31 August – 1 September) – men’s and women’s elite races, a time trial and an amateur riders’ sportive.

Cllr Nick Robins, SKDC Cabinet Member for Visitor Economy said: “The momentum for this event is starting to build amongst residents, businesses and the cycling community and now we have the website live to add to that.

“It’s even got suggestions for how people can get involved with what promises to be an amazing event.

“We would love to see communities along the route arranging events to celebrate what’s happening on their doorstep, perhaps a village BBQ, race bunting, painted or even knitted cycles along the route”.

Cycling route plans are now online, with timings, car parking, activities in Bourne over the weekend and ideas for community events along the race route. 

Most of the UK’s professional teams have indicated an interest in participating, with entries opening on 5 April, and the website will carry profiles on riders and teams taking part. 

The sportive, run by Bourne’s cycling club the Bourne Wheelers, takes place over three different distances and can be booked via an online link.

There will also be full details of events in the town, from BMX cycling displays to heritage cycles.
