Atmosphere Electric Bikes World Championships, Bristol
In just 3 years , this event has established itself as the premier festival in the UK electric bike calendar and a major part of the BIG Green Week Festival,.
The 2014 event will be held on Sunday 22nd June, as part of a ‘BIG Bike Day’ finale of the Festival which runs from 14th to 22nd June.
BIG Green Week
Big Green Week is the UK’s festival of eco ideas, art and entertainment with over 50,000 visitors enjoying two weekends of free family entertainment and nine days of inspiring talks, workshops, art, music, poetry, comedy and films. Bristol will be European Green Capital in 2015, the first ever UK city to win this award.
Electric Bike manufactures will again be able to showcase and demonstrate e-bikes all day at the College Green public tryout zone around City Hall. Over 1,800 customers have been able to try an electric bike for themselves on our tryout track over the past two years. In addition manufactures will take part in the World Championship race up the Park Street hill.
The 2014 BIG Bike Day will include
Bristol’s Biggest Bike Ride – this is the UK’s largest free non-competitive cycling event, attracting over 8,000 families on a sunny day, who can cycle on four routes of different length along closed city roads, including under the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. Setting off from Bristol’s Harbourside in the morning, the Rides will return to College Green over lunchtime to enjoy the cycling related activities.
Will be full all day with free bike and family entertainment, including the electric bike tryout zone, bike ride stands and activities, cycling cinema, and children’s entertainment provided by Make Sunday Special, the Mayor of Bristol’s monthly city center street openings for family entertainment.
Will be closed from midday, first for the Atmosphere Electric Bikes World Championship races, and then for other bicycle races (Bristol’s Mayor has challenged London’s Mayor to a race for example). There will also be an Extreme Mountain Bike show on throughout the afternoon.
Electric Bike Businesses wanting to be part of the 2014 event need to book their spot on College Green before space runs out.
