Spokesfest isn't just an annual festival of cycling any more, it's branching off into a year-round cycle promotion organisation. And it's volunteer-run.

Spokesfest launch Special Needs Cycle Project

Spokesfest, the Leicester cycle show/organisation will be staging a free "Come and Try" Special Needs Cycle Project event in Leicester on June 21st.

Funding for the event will come jointly from Spokesfest, Leicester Spokes cycle campaign group and Leicester City Council. Further support and publicity will come via Leicestershire County Council, Leicestershire Health, Leicester Promotions and the environmental charity Environ.

In addition to Spokefest’s own machines they will be hiring several more from Bikeability, a similar project in Ipswich, and In-Tandem from Loughborough.

Any suppliers wanting to become involved can do so, free of charge. E-mail roger@spokesfest.freeserve.co.uk or call 0116 278 1360.
