The Cycle Celebration
Saturday 19 October, Deal Town Council turned St George’s Garden of Rest into a Garden of Activity with a free Cycle Celebration.
At the heart of the Cycle Celebration was RPM Bike Display. They’re one of the UK’s leading bike trials display teams, formed from some of the most experienced demonstration riders. With their specially designed demonstration rigs, RPM Bike Display put on four amazing shows across the day.
When not watching the bike trials performances, visitors to the Cycle Celebration had plenty of things to do.
London based Rollapaluza brought their unique spin on cycling entertainment to the Cycle Celebration with adults & children riding head-to-head on stationary bicycles in short, timed races.
Xtreme Vortex brought an enormous inflatable bungee run with a 33 foot scoring zone on two running lanes giving runners the opportunity to see how far they could run on the bungee cord strapped around their waist.
New local cycle business, Pedaal Duwer was on call as Dr Bike delivering bicycle health checks and sorting minor ailments. Kent Connected was also be on hand to making bikes a bit more secure with their special Bike Marking kit.
Pedaal Duwer also brought along some vintage bikes for visitors to try whilst Dover Transport Museum brought vintage bicycles, tricycles and a penny farthing from their collection, which could certainly be admired, but not ridden!
The Cycle Celebration also included a Bike Jumble, special Visitor Information Centre, Cycle UK's Virtual Reality Headset, Zumba with Stacey and a number of Community Groups, FairTrade Deal, Deal WithIt, Plastic Free Deal and East Kent Climate Action.
