Castle Combe Family Cycling Day
In previous years we planned to make this event as inclusive as possible offering cycling activities for all our visitors be they 2yrs or 102yrs and according to the feedback we received, we hit our target spot on!
The same challenge has therefore been set for 2016 as we work towards an even more exciting and full day of cycling activity for all the family! For 2016 you just need to turn up on the day and register to ride.
Circuit Lap Challenge
One of the highlights from previous years had to be the Circuit Lap Challenge. Offering the chance to cycle the 1.85 mile historic race circuit, the Circuit Lap Challenge was a "must do" on the majority of our visitors lists! We saw kids who must only have been 2 years of age or so going out on balance bikes, we also saw grandparents taking their grandchildren out on trailer bikes and kiddy seats... it really was an event for all! As a further incentive Castle Combe Circuit have offered four adult tickets for any motor racing event for the remiander of the 2016 season or the 2017 season. These tickets will be awarded to the family completing the most laps of the circuit.
And, once again in 2016 also sees the opportunity to raise some much needed funds for Help for Heroes the 2014 and 2015 Charity Partner.
