CAN EVERYONE CYCLE AT THE FESTIVAL?
Yes! Everyone can cycle at the event and in any event of their choosing other than the following exceptions:
  • U14s will not be allowed onto the Sportive Routes and some cut off times for the longer distances that will be published in due course.
  • The 3k and 14k routes will be accessible to all, however, we ask that only those with access requirements who are in training or compete regularly take part in the  30k, 60k and 100k routes as these are reasonably advanced cycle routes.

All tickets are for 3 days and 3 nights. All tickets include spacious camping & showers, access to all music & comedy stages, access to all cycling and wellness talks & workshops, yoga & meditation, the 3km internal cycling track and the 14km Velutopia ride!
