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…)

HALLO Halo Oktoberfest 2015

We know it is only March and spring has barely made an appearance but with the online entry for the Halo Oktoberfest powered by Heritage Volkswagen going live on the 1st April we thought it is time to let everybody know about the 2015 version of Bikefest’s Bavarian brother.

OktoberFestThe Oktoberfest is a solo, pairs and team relay race held on the 10km long singletrack packed all weather course in Ashton Court, Bristol. (more…)

Entries filling quickly

Latest update from our entry desk – entries have been flying in and at this point we have less than 10 solo and 20 pairs places left for the 2015 Bristol Bikefest (across all lengths/distances).

We will keep the entry open for these two categories till Friday the 20th February (lunch time) – however if the places go before then, we will have to close it sooner. (more…)
