Stamford Cycling Festival

   Words by Aaron Scott

The weekend of June 30th saw Stamford play host to it’s first ever Cycling Festival organised by Rutland Cycling and Stamford Transition Town. The aim of the festival was to promote cycling and bring together a collection of exhibitors that helped us showcase all that is great about the sport.

Over the course of the weekend we had over 15 exhibitors ranging from Wheely Fun Wheels with an array of novelty bike to the local Community Police Team who were busy security tagging bikes.

Peterborough Vintage Cycling Club came along with a selection of bikes, some of which were nearly 200 years old! Spoon brakes, wooden wheels and three wheels were the order of the day here.

Here Kim from our Whitwell store tries out one of the vintage trikes under the watchful eye of Stanley the dog.

Bringing us bang up to date was British Cycling who came along with the training tool of the stars, the Watt Bike. Despite being similar in appearance to a regular exercise bike, the Watt Bike gives you all the information you need to know about how well you are performing on a bike. It allows you to not only see which leg is stronger through the pedal stroke but it tells you whereabouts in the pedal rotation you are weakest allowing you to tailor your training accordingly. Rio 2016 here we come!

With sights firmly set on Tdf 2013

If you were feeling a little thirsty we had a bike powered smoothie maker and with over 200 smoothies being made during the day we were doing our bit to keep Stamford on top of their “5 a Day” requirement. Thanks to Waitrose, Morrisons and Sainsburys for providing all the fruit.

With Britain being caught up in Tour fever, there was the chance to have a go at riding the 6.1k prologue stage in Liege from the relative comfort of Stamford Arts Centre. Thanks to modern technology and the helpful guys over at Giant Store, Normanton, we had a top of the range turbo trainer and the very same 6.1k route that Evans, Wiggins and Cavendish would be riding programmed into a computer ready for people to try and top the festival leader board.

Taking on the challenge of the Prologue

Over the course of the weekend we saw nearly a 1000 people across the two days and were provided with a great platform for promoting our rides and events calendar. The wheels are already in motion for putting on an even bigger festival next year and possibly reaching out to other local communities to offer a similar event.

For some people the excitement proved to be too much for them.
