Course, Facilities and Camping

Welcome to the course and facilities page of the 2016 Ritchey Bristol Bikefest.

After moving the event to the Bristol Cathedral Choir School Playing Fields for the 2015 events we are going to return in 2016 to make use of their great facilities. But to make things even better we are adding some more event village based facilities as well.

The new venue is far less affected by wet weather and also offers running water, showers and changing facilities on the edge of the campground.

Once again we are expecting a fair amount of riders and support crews to camp over the whole or some parts of the weekend. So it is extremely important to pre-book your camping nights as space is strictly limited.

To affect the ground as little as possible (in particular when its wet) we would like to ask everyone to keep driving in and around the camp ground and event venue to an absolute minimum. Toilets can be found in the main clubhouse but we will have toilets on site for ‘during the race / solo riders’.

Caterers, a bar and tea / coffee retailers will be on site throughout the weekend. 

The cost per pitch (approx. 5m x 5m) is £4.00 per night per pitch. The pitches should be big enough for a car and a 2 - 3 person tent. Please note - spaces are limited and we have access restrictions, so make sure you enter early and reserve your pitch ASAP to avoid disappointment. We cannot guarantee that you can camp if you haven’t pre-booked. To book please tick the correct boxes on the entry form/online entry and (depending on the day you enter) add the correct amount to your entry fee. 

ACTION: If you are intending to camp with another team, please let us know by cover note or email well in advance of the event so that we can try and allocate you a pitch next to each other.

Please note that we will not be able to accommodate trailers, caravans or mobile homes in the main camp ground. If you are intending to bring a trailer, caravan or mobile home, please contact Paul on 07834 005835 or and we will do our best to help.

If you have marquees, easy-ups or gazebos that you would like to bring with you please get in touch with us on 07834 005835 or 07976 586418 or email: Teams of four riders will be expected to share a maximum of two pitches, unless special arrangements are agreed with us in advance. 

Thank you for your co-operation!
