Walk Cycle Festival 2018

York’s Walk Cycle Festival is back!

It’ll take place in Summer Half Term from Sunday 27 May to 3 June 2018 with an exciting week of events developing, and lots of new activities that are once again a first for York.

The theme this year will be culture. We hope you’ll join us to spend a week of enjoying the best of York’s cultural life on foot and by bike!

There’ll be a party in the park again on Sunday 27 May with music, stalls and fun bike activities, a promenade with the bard just before Shakespeare’s pop-up Rose Theatre opens, tree routes walks and rides creatively engaging with Acomb trees, a tales of car-lite living evening over cava, a shop by bike curious event, a walk cycle poetry competition and ride, a day of reimaging your city for walking and cycling, a series of moving murals painted by you around the city centre and (hopefully) colourful crossings brightening up Bishy Road and beyond…

And the usual quirky walks and rides with community friends across the city –  a Family Ride and BBQ with Angel on the Green, Dawn Chorus Walk/Ride with Sustrans and (hopefully) Mad Alice’s Spoooky Cycle Tour of York (see picture below!).

Watch this space …


Thanks to i-Travel York for part-funding the Festival.
