For 2016 we are adding the Ritchey Reveller – a 60km dirt sportive that takes place on the 12th June and finishing at the Bikefest venue in Ashton Court to the Bikefest line-up.

Bristol Bikefest only one month to go…and as it looks it will be the last one (for a while) as we are taking a break.  

It is beautiful out there with bluebells everywhere, wild garlic giving the trails a summery scent and with some lovely sunshine keeping the trails dry and fast. Must be Bikefest time soon. In fact it is less than one month to go now… with the Ritchey Bristol Bikefest powered by Heritage Volkswagen returning to the trails of Ashton Court, Bristol on the 11-12th June 2016.

We are going to take a break:
Before we get into any details on the upcoming event here a quick update from our end. After running the Bikefest for the last 15 years we have decided to take a break. So if you have been part of the ‘Fest’ over the last 15 years and liked (partly or all of it) what we did then make sure you don’t miss out on what might be the last Bikefest in Ashton Court.
