Less than two weeks to go before the Kona Cheddar Bikefest takes place at Broadway House in Cheddar on 12-13 September 2009, and entries are flying in and preparations for one of the last events of the summer are in full flow.
On Saturday 12 September a 10 hour team and solo event takes place followed on Sunday by a 5 hour event, along with a 3 hour ride aimed at novice riders. Both days can be ridden as solo events or as teams of 2 or 4. The special twist on Saturday is that the last couple of hours might be ridden in the dark and will offer a real chance for everybody to enjoy night riding before the winter properly sets in. So make sure that you have some lights with you in case it gets dark down ‘Witches Wood’.
Besides that there will be the traditional kids race on Saturday which will send the smallest racers around the event village and the bigger ones out on a reduced loop of the proper Cheddar course.
As in the last few years there will be a Bikefest loyalty gift worth more than £25 to everyone who either entered the Bristol and the Cheddar Bikefest in one year or decides to enter the Saturday and the Sunday event over the Cheddar weekend.
The Cheddar event village will be full with the latest stuff from Kona, Saris, Cyclops, Sortimo, Ritchey, Canterbury, NoTubes, Xtreme Video, Tag a Long, Specialized, Torq, Giant, High5, Cube, Bionicon, Merida, Cannondale, Bad Ass Bikes, RAM, Embers Merino, Zero G, Mondraker and Next day Tyres.
Camping and facilities
You will find lots of 1st class showers, water points, toilets, power points for your caravan or motor home and to finish it all of you can hire your own stationary caravan. There is a camping shop on site and the bar will be open on Friday and Saturday evening for some pre or post-event drinks. Besides that you will find lots of bike washing facilities.
