Details of the talks and workshops for the Cycle Touring Festival 2020 will be listed here as they are confirmed.
We are thrilled to announce that the focus of the 2020 festival will be ‘Travel Lightly’. We’ll be featuring cycling adventures closer to home, and those which avoid flying wherever possible. Cycling is the most environmentally friendly mode of transport, so let’s celebrate that!
