The Cycle Touring Festival 2018 took place from 4 – 7 May.  It was an incredible weekend of inspirational talks and practical workshops – plus the sun shone for the whole weekend, which is practically unheard of in Lancashire.

Photographs will be added here soon, but in the meantime you can see more details by clicking the links below.
