The P&P World Cycling Revival, the greatest celebration of the bicycle the world has ever seen, will be a high-end heritage sporting, music and lifestyle festival celebrating 200 years of the bicycle. Held 14th-16th June 2018, the event is set in the halcyon days of the Herne Hill Velodrome, when it hosted the London 1948 Olympics, and our patrons will be invited to wear vintage themed clothing throughout the whole festival.
It is a brand new event that combines the important cultural and societal impact of the bicycle with a celebration of the nation’s love for two wheels.
The event’s various sporting, lifestyle and musical activities will create an intoxicating atmosphere that will make attendance at the event an absolute must for any fan of cycling or heritage events. The event aims to become an annual highlight of the summer social and sporting calendar; creating the best hospitality experience in the sport of cycling.
The Herne Hill velodrome will host a full programme of racing including a Japanese Keirin Trophy where guests can place bets, via Fitzdares, on the five races each day. London bicycle brand Condor Cycles, founded in 1948, will provide steel framed Keirin bikes built with Japanese Keirin-style components.
The programme will also feature The Brompton 48 Invitational race, a brand new event, where winner takes all; riders, including former professional cyclist David Millar, will race to claim a £10,048 prize pot. Penny Farthing racing, derny and stayer racing will also take place.
Event guests will be able to explore a huge array of exhibition space, featuring extensive interactive and engaging displays, which will transport them through the history of this wonderful invention. Exhibitions will include the History of the bicycle, run in partnership with The National Cycle Museum. A number of other must-do experiences will be unveiled on the day by some of the Festival’s major partners, such as Exodus Travel.
