There were guided rides led by CTC volunteers.Watched the Olympic mountain biking on the big screen. Plenty of interest at our CTC stall, which included a quiz with a prize donated by Pitsford Cycles. Warm enough for a ice cream. Saw Michael Ellis (MP for Northampton North) try cycling around a wooden platform named “the wall-of-death bomberdrome”. Tried a bike and fell of when the handle bars twisted round. Lots of people there. Overall this felt like the best cycle-focused event held in Northampton for many years, and something that hopefully will encourage more people to participate in whatever way best suits them. The organisers are hoping to run the event again next year.
