This year’s festival will be raising money for a new Bike and a Scooter shed for Disley Primary School to help promote cycling and health for our youngest residents.

Entry to the BikeFest is FREE but some activities and challenges will be chargeable. We aim to raise as much money as possible, so please come along and have a great family day out whilst supporting your local school.

Anyone who has been to the previous events will know what a fabulous day it promises to be so bring a picnic blanket, invite your friends and make an afternoon of it.

Follow the BikeFest on Facebook HERE to keep up to date with all the fun.

If anyone would like to volunteer to help run the event or local businesses would like a stall please give Tracey Taylor a call on 07568520811 or contact her on Facebook.

DISLEY CYCLING FESTIVAL – 2016 UPDATE

After careful consideration of the time and resources involved, Disley Parish Council has decided this event should be held every two years. This would schedule the next Cycling Festival for Summer 2017.  Holding a biennial event will allow the Council more time to plan and sign up volunteers etc.

The Council appreciates that this may be a disappointment to the many visitors who attended the highly successful 2015 Festival but is sure that 2017 can be even better.

If you would like to get involved in the 2017 event as a volunteer, visitor or exhibitor, please contact the Parish Council at: mailto:admin@disleyparishcouncil.org.uk
