29 & 30 - August Cycle Town at Colchester Free Festival


FREE Dr Bike, fruit smoothie and entry into raffle prize draw to win cycling goodies for everyone who cycles to the free festival and parks in our Cycle Town!

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.
