We always wanted riding bikes to be a big part of the festival. Whilst our workshops and speakers will help to inspire, our rides will induce a grin. In partnership with various contributors and brands, we have put on a number of rides and have tried to keep them in line with the event's adventurous spirit. Rides range from a small demo loop within Brathay's grounds to a fully fledged gravel event as well as self-guided rides. There should be something for everyone.
Demo bikes from some of the leading adventure bike brands, including OPEN, Mason, Orbea, Surly & Ritchey.
New for this year the Adventure Cycle Festival is pleased to welcome Frog Bikes and Bambino Biking.
