Velo Festival: Bike Life 2014 @Ely

The County Council are organising a “Velo Festival” this summer with a big event in Ely on Sunday June 1st in the Market Square, we’ll be there with a stall.

Here’s the description from the official flyer

Come and spend a fun packed afternoon at the first in a series of Bike Life events, where there will be an array of exciting cycling activities to try out. Get tips, advice and support on bicycle maintenance from Dr. Bike; pedal up your own delicious smoothie on a pedal powered smoothie
maker; take up the Brompton challenge and see how quickly you can assemble, race a lap and put down a Brompton; and see a history of the bicycle with a display from the March Vintage and Veteran Cycle Club. There will also be a Street Velodrome in which you can take the
challenge to speed around a specially built cycle
track, promising to be an exhilarating activity for
cyclist of all abilities and spectators.

The Street Velodrome is a mini portable version of the kind of track used for the Olympics – more info here
