Wallingford Festival of Cycling

This three day festival – which has grown from just one day at its launch in 2014 – is packed with events to inspire as many people as possible, young and old, to get on their bikes. This not for profit festival is run entirely by volunteer cycling enthusiasts and features a mix of free and paid-for activities, all centered around the community and bikes.

Starting on Friday 6 July to Sunday 8 July, it promises an action-packed weekend.  Activities include several organised rides for all ages and abilities, a pump track, outdoor spin classes, children’s cycle coaching and more.  New additions include The Festival Cycling Show at the Wallingford Corn Exchange and the crazy soap box challenge!  We are also delighted to partner with local charity Style Acre who will be organising our first ever Inclusive Ride on Sunday in the town centre.

Events like this cannot happen without our wonderful volunteers, so if you fancy getting involved, please get in contact.

For more information, please visit our website www.wfoc.co.uk, follow us on Twitter @wfocycling or Facebook /wallingfordfestivalofcycling or contact 

Thank you in advance for your support.
