We’re closing the roads to traffic in Leicester and hosting a street festival for anyone on a bike.

Music, food and drink, fun and games, demos, giveaways, activities, challenges, face painting – it’s all happening.
It’s free to enter, you get to see your city in a different way and it’s a fun, active, family-friendly day out. You don’t have to go the 5k distance – just as much or as little as you want. And you don’t need to be an experienced cyclist – there are no cars on the road, you can wobble, zig-zag and stop as much as you like.

You just need to be up for some fun. Everyone’s invited – see you there!
