Are you coming to Bike Bath this weekend? If you are, make sure you come down to the Bath Rugby clubhouse on Saturday evening (doors open 5.30pm) for the Celebration of Cycling evening. You can have a beer after your ride (or before, if you're riding on the Sunday) and get involved with an evening of talks and Q&As covering a wide gamut of cycling topics. You can come if you're not riding, too.
June 22-23 is the longest weekend of the year, so why not spend as much of it as you can doing what you love? Bike Bath is back for 2013, offering two very different rides on the Saturday and Sunday, plus an evening of thought-provoking cycling speakers, great food and more. Last year over 700 riders headed to the South West to sample Bath's delights; this year it'll be even bigger.
This weekend our home town of Bath is playing host to the inaugural Bike Bath weekend, why not come down and try on a few of our hills for size?

Nothing could be more appealing than a nice ride in the country in weather like this, eh?

The Bike Bath festival features sportives on the Saturday and Sunday, and a timetable of supporting events too.
Bath’s Royal Victoria Park is set to provide the base for a new cycling festival next June that will include two 100-mile sportive rides, possibly incorporating the Two Tunnels cycleway, assuming it opens on time in April.
