The Castle Combe Family Cycling Day is the sister event to the Severn Bridge Sportive. Established in 2012, every year since the historic circuit has seen thousands of keen cyclists of all ages and abilities take part in a day of fun, family-friendly cycling.

If the answer to any of these questions is yea, then why not come along to the historic Castle Combe Race Circuit for a day of cycling fun for all the family!

Go-Ride is a British Cycling scheme offering youngsters the opportunity to improve their cycling skills around a range of obstacles.
From children just off stabilisers to kids who have been cycling for a number of years, this offers kids of all ages the chance to have-a-go at improving their two-wheel skills.
Back for 2018 are Strider Bikes – balance bikes for toddlers which are renowned for helping teach youngsters how to balance and ensuring that they start cycling early! The children have a fantastic time learning new skills and riding with their families for the first time. We even had a few that completed the circuit lap challenge last year.
The brilliant National Autistic Society team will be with us throughout the day running stalls to raise money for the charity. The perfect way to spend some time having a rest from the bike! They charity are bringing a sensory bus which will be on site throughout the day.
The lovely teams who look after our local roads are joining us to help raise awareness about road safety and to encourage all road users to look out for each other! We’ll have our lovely local traffic officer, a haulier from Tarmac with his ‘blind spot’ mat – you can even go up in the lorry and see what the drivers see – and Wiltshire Council Road Safety Partnership with their Close Pass Initiative.
We have a number of bike shops and product stalls coming along on the day, so bring your pennies and you could pick up a bargain! A pair of socks, a new helmet, even a bike…
The Tavern cafe will be open during the day, as will a number of other concession stands and an ice cream truck! Alternatively, there are plenty of lovely spots for a picnic at the side of the circuit.
