Be inspired to get on your bike – whatever your age or ability – at Belfast’s new festival dedicated to all things cycling. Belcycle is a family-friendly festival taking place on Saturday 16 June under the watchful eye of Aslan the lion at CS Lewis Square in east Belfast.

There will be bikes of all shapes and sizes to test ride on the day including tandems, cargo bikes, scooters, balance bikes and adapted bikes for those with special needs. Pick up advice and tips from local cycling retailers on bikes, clothing and accessories, as well as information on cycling adventures, holidays, clubs and events.

We know Belcycle's going to be a lot of fun for all the family.

Leisure and commuter cycling across the city has seen a remarkable increase in recent years due to improving infrastructure and new traffic-free corridors. More people than ever are recognising the health benefits of cycling and that it is a convenient, often fun way to travel.

To celebrate this rising culture, Belcycle will have something for the whole family to enjoy, from toddlers through to grandparents with a wide variety of free, fun pedal-powered attractions and activities. There are lots of free cycle training courses for adults and children, complete beginners and for the more experienced cyclist, throughout the summer as an extension of the Belcycle festival.
