bikefestA day of two-wheeled action and fun for all levels of rider
UK - Backup’s first event of 2019, the inaugural Bike-Fest takes place 18 May, a day of two-wheeled action and fun for all levels of rider to raise funds for the industry charity.
For the more hardened cyclists, including the lycra-loving ‘Mamil’ (Middle aged man in lycra), there is a glorious 100km ride through the Sussex and Surrey countryside, which will take in much of the famed Olympic and Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 route, including Leith Hill, the highest point in Surrey, and the famous Box Hill Zig Zag.
Whether you’re riding as an individual, with friends or as a company Peloton, this will be a great day out to sport your finest padded shorts, have an excuse to shave those legs and pack as many bananas in your cycling top as possible.
For the less lycra inclined, there is also a 50km route, again taking in much of the lovely Surrey countryside, but also a number of isotonic watering holes en-route for you to recharge your batteries.
The day starts and finishes at Creative Technology’s Sussex HQ who are handing over the keys to their offices and generously supporting the first bikefest. Here you will be given your route and meet the other riders. Then, catering partners the Global Infusion Group will fill you with bacon sandwiches before you leave and upon your triumphant return, fill you up with more food & drinks, then onto the prizes and the winner of celebrated backup winner’s ‘yellow’ jersey!
Everyone is welcome for what is set to be a great day for the enthusiast and leisure cyclist alike and for everyone to enjoy the fun with family and friends.
