People of all ages and abilities are gearing up for an out-of-this world celebration of cycling in Bearsden and Milngavie.

From pedal-powered cinemas and extra-terrestrials to African adventures and local history rides, there’s something for everyone at The Big Bike Fest.

There will be a host of spoke-tacular events from 28 May to 5 June, culminating in The Big Bike Fest Gala near Allander Leisure Centre. The free family gala includes an exciting stunt show, ‘funny’ bikes, cycle lessons, a skills track, bouncy castles and more.
