If you fancy yourself the next Sir Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish or Chris Froome get along to the first ever Bikeingham.

The Destination Buckingham group has organised a free festival of cycling activities in the Heartlands on Sunday, July 27, from 9am, following the increasing popularity of cycling after the recent Tour de France.

The event will feature a family bike ride, between 9am and 1pm, using most of the town’s circular walk, with maps and directions provided while for the more energetic, the Millennium Cycle Club will be holding a cyclo-cross race featuring hectic cycling, thrills and spills as well as an opportunity to get some extra exercise.

Team Extreme will be running a BMX competition and demonstrations in the skate park.

There will also be several cycling related stalls including Cycle Coding by Thames Valley Police, Solstice Cycles (Buckingham’s own bike shop), Sustrans (the national cycle network), Bucks County Council, and Bucks Fire and Rescue Service.

And of course there will be refreshment stalls to fortify riders and spectators alike.

Heartlands is over the bridge from Cornwalls Meadow car park. Look for the Bikeingham banners.

The Destination Buckingham Group is funded by Aylesbury Vale District Council, and seeks to promote the town by enhancing its attraction to local visitors and those from further afield.
