Plans for the inaugural Ride Chartridge cycle event continue to grow – with children set to take centre stage at the new festival.

In addition to offering a 100km and 45km ride through the beautiful Chiltern countryside, a full programme for younger cycling enthusiasts has been announced.

The children’s cycle festival will run from 12pm to 3pm on Sunday, May 11 with a packed schedule of fun activities taking place within the safety of Chartridge School’s grounds.

This includes a bicycle assault course, skills training, scooter races, bicycle races and bouncy castles.

Children can register on the day for a £3 fun pass, which will provide unlimited access to all of the activities.

Go Ride cycling trainer Clare Muir said: “The school offers a great space for running an exciting obstacle course; it is ideal for any child who enjoys getting on their bike and going on an adventure.

“We’ll provide close supervision to make sure children of all abilities can successfully navigate the course and have a great time.”

There will be a number of stalls in the event village provided by local businesses, including a tuck shop, licensed bar, sports massage, stretch-down pilates sessions, pop-up bike shops and event photography.

Organised in association with IBB Solicitors, all profits from the day will go to Chartridge Primary School.

Event organiser Richard Bassett added: “The first ever Ride Chartridge is really starting to take shape, with huge interest from the local community helping to make this an event to remember.”
