Ritchey Bikefest – entries to close on the 17th May

On the 13th June the Ritchey Bristol Bikefest powered by Heritage Volkswagen will return to the trails of Ashton Court, Bristol for the 14th issue of the Fest. And with only a month (and a bit) to go preparations are in full flow BUT entries are also soon to close – so be quick now!!!

With the Bikefest seeing entry surge after entry surge we are heading to the ‘sell out’ number in big steps. So (if not before) the entry will close on the 17th May. The only event/category staying open will be the ‘Steve Worland ride singletrack hard & drink a swig of cider per lap memorial cup’ but more about that further down.   (more…)

Ritchey Bikefest – 2 months count down has begun

The ‘2 months’ count down has started. With less than 2 months to go now preparations for the 2015 Ritchey Bristol Bikefest powered by Heritage Volkswagen are starting to ramp up and with the weather playing its part as well.  Also the pre-event excitement has kicked in at Bikefest towers.

We have been lucky enough to sneak in lots of ‘test loops’ of our Bikefest course and even after using it for more than a decade it still posts a mega big smile on our faces. (more…)
