Lycra-clad riders are preparing to pedal two epic routes from Avenham Park for the city’s annual cycle festival.Advertisement
Pedalfest is returning to the city centre with a family fun day on the park during Sunday (23 July).
Two longer rides are also planned with a 67-mile and 37-mile cycle sportive marked out.
The family festival starts at 10am and runs until 4pm and includes a climbing tower, face painting, electric bike demos, balance bikes and much more fun on two wheels.
