Pedal on down to Velo Festival in Ely next weekend

Written byJORDAN DAY

All things cycling will be celebrated at an event in Ely next weekend.

Velo Festival is being held on the city’s Market Place on Sunday (June 1) as part of the series of Bike Life 2014 events.

A spokesman for the event said: “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 cyclists of all abilities and spectators.”

The event is running from 10.30am-4.30pm and is free.
