2017 DISLEY BIKEFEST
What a wheelie fantastic day
There was a great turnout for the 2017 Disley BikeFest and the organisers were delighted to see so many cyclists and runners from all over the North West at the event in September. Disley families and kids of all ages get on their bikes and enjoyed the activities in the glorious sunshine. A special thank you goes to all the children who joined in and had fun doing the bike and running races, completing the obstacle courses on their bikes, having cycling lessons and getting their faces painted. The organisers had lots of terrific feedback saying how much the children loved the day and the opportunity to get on their bike and have fun. It was a fantastic community event for all.
The BikeFest raised funds for a bike and scooter shelter at Disley Primary School to encourage more pupils to ride to school. A whopping £645 was raised from the raffle with kind donations from Dame Sarah Storey, Manchester City, Disley Co-op, Cycle Space, Mr Chong’s Restaurant and many more local businesses. Amazingly, JB Castles donated all their takings on the day from the Bouncy castle and popcorn etc. All contributors are thanked for their donations.
Finally, massive “thank yous” go to the Disley Amalgamated Sports Club for hosting the event, the Disley WI and the Amalgamated for their lovely teas and BBQ and Disley Parish Council for their kind sponsorship of the event.
Roll on 2019!
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:firstname.lastname@example.org
