Bikefest dates announced


As in the last two years there will be two great events on offer and the website including online entry for both events in now open for business.


Ritchey Bristol Bikefest powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport

9th - 10th June 2012 – Ashton Court, Bristol


In 2012 the Ritchey Bristol Bikefest will return once more to the fantastic event location of Ashton Court, Bristol, but this year there is something new… Tested in the Oktoberfest and given some star ratings, the Bikefest will also run on the new Ashton Court course in 2012. The infamous 12 hour team/solo endurance race will take place on Saturday the 9th June and will be followed the day after (10th June) by the 6 hour team/solo event and the 3 hour ‘novice’ event.


Both days are aimed at the experienced rider as well as the newcomer. On Saturday we will have solo, pairs and teams of four categories. The Sunday race will have the same categories. All team sizes can be entered in the team open, team ‘old gits’ (average age of riders needs to be 40+ years) or single speed category (there no single speed category on Sunday). There are obviously mixed teams and pairs in the running as well.  Besides that, the three hour novice event will have teams of 2-4 and a solo category.


As well as race action, there will be a great musical line-up, with live music on Saturday night and DJ running from early evening until late into the night on Friday and Saturday and there were be a bar on Friday and Saturday, the Bikefest food village and a colourful event village with a broad selection of the latest bikes and kit.

Stan’s NoTubes Oktoberfest powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport

13th October 2012 – Ashton Court, Bristol


Following fantastic take-up earlier this year, the Oktoberfest will return in full force in 2012 but now with a new supporter. Stan’s NoTubes is taken on the sponsorship for the Oktoberfest and will be on site over the event weekend showing their products as well as helping out with riders keen to jump onto the tubeless train.


The event will once more be based around the fantastic Ashton Court course and will feature the Bikefest typical relaxed atmosphere, smooth overall organisation plus a little bit of an ‘Bavarian’ twist'. 8hr and two 4hr-riding races will be on offer, but the 2012 Oktoberfest is not just a shorter re-run of the Bikefest, organisers promise a few surprises for you as well – which sounds most intriguing!


They tell us they will have a ‘comfort station’ serving coffee, tea, biscuits, on tab for the riders when they finish their lap, as well as well a few more Bavarian undertones thrown into the mix.  So be prepared for swoopy single track, oompah music, pretzels as medals (or maybe not) and some Weissbier at the bar!
