The festival is a great day out for all the family with children's craft activities, local produce and more. As a special treat, anyone that arrives by bicycle between 10am and noon will be given a voucher for a hot drink and breakfast bap or pastry at Brownlow's cafe. National Trust will also be running a special membership offer. Full details are on the events page.

Returning after a break in 2012, the Bikefest is organised by Transition Town Berkhamsted as part of their work to improve their town. There are a range of cycling activities for all ages. We'll be running a led ride beforehand. Full details will be available soon.

Organised by the Bucks MTB affiliate group, the day's activities will include bike orienteering, group ride games, individual challenges and more, all finished off with a BBQ in the gorgeous surroundings of Wendover Woods. More details about the event are on the Bucks MTB website.

Many of these events are already listed on CTC's event listings calendar, along with lots more rides and races taking place across the country. We'll be adding more information soon, along with details of other events in the area.
