With the sun finally making a return it’s that time of year when we all start to plan more family days out and holidays – after all you have to make the most of the good weather while we have it! As a family we love spending time together outdoors so today I’m really pleased to be working with Experience Freedom to share some information about their Cyclefest which is coming to Sledmere on May 27th. In my previous role before blogging took over I used to work getting people involved in sport and helped get funding for the Olympic Mountain Biking venue for the 2012 Olympics so as you can imagine this is a subject quite close to my heart! I’m also sharing the chance for you to win a pair of tickets to the Cyclefest at Sledmore and the National plus find out about an amazing competition to win a family cycling holiday in France.
There are three Cyclefest events taking place this year – the Scottish Wanderer Cyclefest will take place in Kelso on 6th May while the Welsh Wanderer Cycle Fest takes place on 26th August in Monmouth but for me the most local is The National Wanderer Cyclefest which will take place in Sledmere on 27th May. The venue of Sledmere House sounds amazing – a stately home with beautiful gardens nestled in the Yorkshire Wolds. More importantly though it’s lined up to be a great day out for families. With a family fun ride that’s suitable for all abilities (and all finishers get a medal which my kids would love) there’s also a bike demo course, skills area and competitions – perfect for getting your kids excited about the sport. We spent the last weekend getting our kids back onto their bikes cycling and they loved it so much they can’t wait to go out again on a proper ride, I know that an event like this would be great fun for them!
Cyclefest also give your entry to the National hosted by the Caravan and Motorhome Club which has tons of fun friendly activities on including crafts, a ninja assault course, a zip wire and a royal garden party to celebrate the royal wedding. Plus there’ll be lots off street food and stalls to check out too! Find out more about Cyclefest here.
