This year cycling is at the heart of the Free Festival. Our Cycle Town will include free cycle parking, a free smoothie (pedalled by us!) Dr Bike and a free raffle ticket for everyone making use of our cycle parking. Colchester Bike Kitchen, CTC cycle champions, St Helena's Hospice, CoHoC and Cycle Colchester will be on hand to talk to you about cycling locally, keeping your bike in order, charity rides coming up and much more.
Walk Colchester will have their Boma available to try out.
Find us at the bottom of Upper Castle Park, inside the folley wall.
In the family area near the play area, bring the kids to decorate some funky bike, feet or scootering glasses with Cycle Colchester.

Read Wolf's insirational story about how cycling has transformed his mobility. Find out about the e-bikes he has built, his campaigning for better cycle links particularly between towns and his lobbying for ebikes to be recognised as a mobility aid. 'Getting the bus is causing me big problems, but cycling is good. Going to work by bus I’m sitting down for an hour and a half and I’d have to take painkillers before going to work, but not when I’m cycling.'
