Visit Activate Cycle Academy at this weekend’s York Cycle Festival

Posted on 19 Jun 2024

Cytech-partner Activate Cycle Academy, which has specialist cycle maintenance training centres in Oxford, Guildford, Stafford and Darlington, will be exhibiting at this weekend’s York Cycle Festival.

York Cycle festival

The Activate Cycle Academy team will have information about all its Cytech courses, tips and tricks on how to maintain your bike, plus full details about its industry-leading bike mechanics’ apprenticeship programme and how to start a successful career within the cycle industry.

The Festival will also see the annual York Rally, which, since 1945 has been billed as an annual ‘gathering of the cycling clans’. The event draws cycle tourists and Audax riders; club cyclists and racers; vintage, veteran and retro cycle riders and experts; grasstrack and cyclocross racers; cycle campers and bikepackers; HPV, adaptive and recumbent riders; everyday cyclists and many more.

Parking and entrance to the festival is free, as are most of the activities and events taking place over the weekend.

Full details about the festival can be found on the link here.
