Belcycle is back! Belfast’s family-friendly festival dedicated to all things cycling will take place on Saturday 15 June at CS Lewis Square in east Belfast. Be inspired to get on your bike – whatever your age or ability and join in the FREE festival.

There will be bikes of all shapes and sizes to test ride on the day including tandems, a side- by-side bike, scooters and balance bikes. You can join in activities such as:

  • cycle training
  • maintenance workshops
  • led rides
  • giant outdoor games
  • bike smoothie-maker
  • bike paint-spinner
  • slow bike race
  • advice from local cycling retailers on bikes, clothing and accessories
  • information on cycling adventures, holidays, clubs and events
  • competitions and spot prizes 
  • refreshments and BBQ 

CS Lewis Square is the ideal location for the festival as it is where the Comber and Connswater Community Greenways intersect. The square is also home to Sustrans Active Travel Hub, an EU-funded CHIPS project that encourages commuters in east Belfast to try alternatives to the car such as public transport, or cycling and walking.  Sustrans will be at the Festival to offer travel advice, route planning, cycle training and fun pedal-powered activities.

So bring your family, friends and a picnic for a free fun-filled day that will keep the whole family entertained.

Belcycle will run from 11am to 3pm on Saturday 15 June at CS Lewis Square, east Belfast. There will be provision of on-site cycle parking and it is well connected to the city centre by bus or Glider from the nearby Newtownards Road.
