We raced the Bristol Bikefest last month and enjoyed every minute of one of the best 12-hour events the UK has to offer.
The new Ashton Court course survived a deluge the day before the race and was one of the most fun we’ve ridden. “Looking at the weather we have been having here in Bristol since then we can wholeheartedly say that ‘we got away with it’,” the organisers told us. You can read our ride report here.
This little video gives you a sample of what the Bikefest was all about. And if you fancy a bit of the action, entries are open for Oktoberfest; an eight and four-hour race organised by the people behind Bikefest. It will be held on October 13 and you can expect a distinctly Bavarian flavour. Enter online at www.bike-fest.com/oktoberfest/
