‘Wee Cycle Festival’ 2016

Wee Cycle Festival

The Wee Cycle Festival, 6-7th August 2016 –

(10am until 6pm) Sterling Mills, Tillicoultry

We’re saddling up for the first ‘Wee Cycle Festival’ . After the success of last year’s Street Velodrome event at Sterling Mills, this year we thought we’d take it up a gear or two (excuse the puns!) and bring together a whole host of activities that will get people excited about cycling . We have:

  • the velodrome back by popular demand, so you’ll be able to test yourself at top speed!
  • Get Cycling along with their family bike try-out roadshow & pedal-powered bike arcade including scalextric, velodrome, lightshow and even a smoothie maker
  • balance bike lessons for little ones
  • led rides for the family
  • Central FM providing the soundtrack for the weekend with lots of competitions and give aways!

We’ll also have face paints, arts & crafts and a climbing wall for the kids along with all the shops and cafes that make Sterling Mills a great day out at any time.
