You can still access much of the content which was broadcast over the weekend, free of charge.

If you bought a ticket for the ‘real’ event, you should have received a full refund.  See here for more information.

2021 dates

The Cycle Touring Festival 2021 will be on 28-31 May, held at Waddow Hall in Clitheroe, as usual.  Tickets will go on sale towards the end of the year.

“What an amazing weekend it has been! I was hoping to get tips and ideas, have questions answered and meet like-minded people. I got all that and much, much more.

I have come away feeling inspired, humbled, affirmed, elated, reassured, itching to go and above all I feel I have found my tribe.

A great group of people that get excited by the idea of moving on and exploring the world on a bike and are full of generosity and willingness to share.”
