  1. Cycle to Isle of Wight Festival 2018

    All, we've already had 3 people sign up to cycle to IoW 2018! Get involved by signing up on meetup.com: https://www.meetup.com/preview/Cycle-2-Festivals-2018/events/243273909 https://www.facebook.com/groups/356962798082267/ More details to follow over the coming weeks and months. Thanks Richard
  2. Cycle to Reading 2018

    Peaks and non curly handlebars welcome! If you (or anyone else) is interested in having a look at the detail check out: https://www.meetup.com/Cycle-2-Festivals-2018 Cheers Richard
  3. Cycle to V Festival 2018

    Cheers watsonjm. Definitely holding off for now!
  4. Cycle to Latitude 2018

    Latitude 2018 Festival Goers! Last year my partner Tui and I cycled from London to Glastonbury via the Surrey Hills, the South Downs, the New Forest and the Jurassic Coast over 4 glorious sunny days. It was a really relaxing, stress-free way to get there, a good way to enjoy the beauty of Southern England and meet new people and it was a great adventure! Cycling is also so popular that I'm surprised the festivals aren't better set up to accommodate cyclists, though some do offer bicycle storage for the duration of the festival. I will be cycling from London to next year's Latitude festival and have decided to organise an all-in 2 or 3 day supported group tour from London to the gates of the festival, most likely taking in the Lee Valley, Essex countryside, Dedham Vale and the Suffolk Heritage Coast en route. Want it to be super easy and fun so am planning to include accommodation (camping or B&B option), GPX navigation file or printed turn by turn directions of the route, ferry ticket to the Isle of Wight, van hire to transport our luggage and festival gear to our destination each day, on-road technical support for any bike issues, snacks, water and storage of bikes at the festival. Would this be of interest? If so I'd love to hear from you on here or email me on richard.wake@googlemail.com. Keen to make it as useful as possible so any feedback or comments on the idea are welcome. And the bigger the group the better! Cheers Richard
  5. Cycle to Reading 2018

    Reading 2018 Festival Goers! Last year my partner Tui and I cycled from London to Glastonbury via the Surrey Hills, the South Downs, the New Forest and the Jurassic Coast over 4 glorious sunny days. It was a really relaxing, stress-free way to get there, a good way to enjoy the beauty of Southern England and meet new people and it was a great adventure! Cycling is also so popular that I'm surprised the festivals aren't better set up to accommodate cyclists, though some do offer bicycle storage for the duration of the festival. I will be cycling from London to next year's Reading festival and have decided to organise an all-in 1 or 2 day supported group tour from London to the gates of the festival, most likely taking in Richmond Park, Colne Valley, Windsor Great Park and Royal Ascot en route. Want it to be super easy and fun so am planning to include accommodation for the 2 day option (camping or B&B option), GPX navigation file or printed turn by turn directions of the route, ferry ticket to the Isle of Wight, van hire to transport our luggage and festival gear to our destination each day, on-road technical support for any bike issues, snacks, water and storage of bikes at the festival.

  6. Cycle to Bestival 2018

    Bestival 2018 Festival Goers! Last year my partner Tui and I cycled from London to Glastonbury via the Surrey Hills, the South Downs, the New Forest and the Jurassic Coast over 4 glorious sunny days.

Cycling is also so popular that I'm surprised the festivals aren't better set up to accommodate cyclists, though some do offer bicycle storage for the duration of the festival. I will be cycling from London to next year's Bestival and have decided to organise an all-in 2 or 3 day supported group tour from London to the gates of the festival, doing the same route through the Surrey Hills, the South Downs, the New Forest and the Jurassic Coast. Want it to be super easy and fun so am planning to include accommodation (camping or B&B option), GPX navigation file or printed turn by turn directions of the route, ferry ticket to the Isle of Wight, van hire to transport our luggage and festival gear to our destination each day, on-road technical support for any bike issues, snacks, water and storage of bikes at the festival.

  7. Cycle to V Festival 2018

    V 2018 Festival Goers! Last year my partner Tui and I cycled from London to Glastonbury via the Surrey Hills, the South Downs, the New Forest and the Jurassic Coast over 4 glorious sunny days. It was a really relaxing, stress-free way to get there, a good way to enjoy the beauty of Southern England and meet new people and it was a great adventure! Cycling is also so popular that I'm surprised the festivals aren't better set up to accommodate cyclists, though some do offer bicycle storage for the duration of the festival. We will be cycling from London to one or both of next year's V in Weston Park and have decided to organise an all-in 2 or 3 day supported group tour from London to the gates of the festival, most likely taking in some combination of the Chilterns, the Cotswolds, and maybe even the Malverns or Shropshire Hills en route. Want it to be super easy and fun so am planning to include accommodation (camping or B&B option), GPX navigation file or printed turn by turn directions of the route, ferry ticket to the Isle of Wight, van hire to transport our luggage and festival gear to our destination each day, on-road technical support for any bike issues, snacks, water and storage of bikes at the festival.
