On Your Bike! Chipping Sodbury Festival Bike Ride next Sunday, 21 June

There will be a choice of two rides, 12 and 25 miles. The twelve mile event will be suitable for families, and as usual there will be a quiz with prizes. “Children from five or six upwards manage twelve miles quite easily,” said Councillor Paul Hulbert, one of the organizers. “It’s the adults who have more trouble! For safety reasons children under secondary school age need to be accompanied by an adult.”

The longer ride is a little more challenging and will explore the countryside to the north and east of Chipping Sodbury.

“As usual, we’re showcasing some new routes this year, including the new cyclepath on the Iron Acton to Yate road” said Cllr Hulbert.

The events will start from Chipping Sodbury Clock Tower. The 25 mile ride will set off at 11.30 am, and the 10 mile ride will begin at 12.30 pm. Both rides will finish in Jubilee Park by about 2pm – just in time for the Festival boules match (equipment provided) and the Avon Wildlife Trust duck race!
