New website showcases Bourne CiCLE Festival




A new website has been launched for Bourne’s first-ever CiCLE Festival.

The website (www.bourneciclefestival.com) will be regularly updated wkith details of the event, which runs in late summer.

Over the weekend of August 31-September 1, there will be’s and women’s elite races, a time trial and an amateur riders’ sportive.

The festival is being organised by South Kesteven District Council as part of its wider ambitions to boost sports and culture across the district.

Coun Nick Robins, SKDC Cabinet Member for Visitor Economy said: “The momentum for this event is starting to build amongst residents, businesses and the cycling community and now we have the website live to add to that.

“It’s even got suggestions for how people can get involved with what promises to be an amazing event.

“We would love to see communities along the route arranging events to celebrate what’s happening on their doorstep, perhaps a village BBQ, race bunting, painted or even knitted cycles along the route”.

Cycling route plans are now online, with timings, car parking, activities in Bourne over the weekend and ideas for community events along the race route.

Most of the UK’s professional teams have indicated an interest in participating, with entries opening on April 5, and the website will carry profiles on riders and teams taking part.

The sportive, run by Bourne’s cycling club the Bourne Wheelers, takes place over three different distances and can be booked via an online link.

There will also be full details of events in the town, from BMX cycling displays to heritage cycles.
