Cyclopark proudly presents it’s first cycling festival, with the aim to show that it is much more than just an elite cycling venue, it is a family inclusive facility with a friendly and safe atmosphere for everyone to feel welcome and enjoy.
The festival itself will include the following:
25km social ride leaving Cyclopark at 10am
There will be a led ride leaving Cyclopark at roughly 10am going out into the Kent countryside. This ride will be led by a few of our local volunteers that are experienced in group riding and have very good knowledge of the roads around the local areas.
This activity will lead out from the café patio; lead riders will be stood out there as a meeting point waiting for all those interested.
Anyone looking to take part will need to fill out a waiver prior to taking part so that we are able to obtain important information like contact details etc. and then add their names to a sign on list which will be given to our lead riders once the sign-on has closed which will be 9:55am to allow for a prompt start at 10am.
Local beers – External organiser offering Dartford brewed beers and other popular brands to set up and sell from 12pm
Depending on the weather we are hoping that the beers will be located on the outskirts of the café patio between the exit to the main forecourt and road circuit. There will be roughly 3-4 ales and other selection of beers available underneath a marquee. In the event that the weather is too bad, the beers will be brought inside and located where the children’s play area is currently based here at the venue.
Beers will be available to buy on the day
Local bands to play sets from 1pm
We are currently in talks with a few local bands with members that are regular users of the venue and understand all that the Cyclopark charitable trust is about. We are looking to get them to do a set from 2pm – 4pm with a mixture of songs from all different types of genres.
The initial location of the bands will be outside in the top left-hand corner of the patio. If the weather isn’t looking great the bands and singers will be located inside with the stage being used that is currently in the café.
Please be aware that on this day the café will not be in operation, the outdoor catering unit will be the main source of catering for all customers using the venue that does not have a ticket.
All tickets will include access to the main road circuit and mountain bike trails, this ticket will NOT include access to either the skate park or BMX track.
Location: Cyclopark, The Tollgate, Gravesend, DA11 7NP
