Seems an odd date to run it. Won't a chunk of the potential audience be at RideLondon-Surrey that weekend, riding, supporting or watching?

Hi mjr
Yes, some people will I'm sure be at the Ride London event but the festival is designed to appeal to a large of people including new riders, commuters, people wanting to try a bike etc not just 'roadies', we also have to fit in around other events at the location we are using.

Seems a good date, a week after the York Rally
Wouldn't mind visiting the home of XTC and the GWR again. Bet it has changed a bit

Doesn't clash with Glasto either (fallow year) :wink:

Cycling-of course, but it is far better on a Gillott
