Rutland Walking and Cycling Festival 2016
21st May - 12th June 2016
‘Great places to visit, views to see and people to meet’
Discover where walking and cycling can take you this summer. Every year we encourage people to take to their feet and bike to feel the benefits of walking and cycling. They are both recommended activities to lose weight, get more active and become healthier.
The Rutland Walking and Cycling Festival is back for 2016 following huge success over the last seven years. The festival is a fun packed celebration of Rutland and its glorious countryside and will host led walks and bike rides to suit all ages and abilities, perfect for a family day out. The residents of Rutland are encouraged to join the many visiting walkers and cyclists who travel from far and wide.
The festival is free of charge and open to everyone. It includes led walks and rides around the historic county of Rutland. The festival will include on average 2-3 walks and rides a day which are suitable for all ages and abilities. It's a perfect opportunity to meet new people with similar interests, explore different areas across the county and refreshments are available on many of the walks and rides.
