BCF Compilation

One of the best loved events at the Festival, the Carnivelo. The UK’s only cycle carnival. This years theme: Monstrous Creatures & Mythical Beasts; turn your bike into a carnival float, don your most incredible fancy dress or come as you are & join in the fun. We’ll be pedalling out en masse to prowl the closed Portway before prizes are awarded and we’ll have the afternoon to take in the exhibits, micro-events and bike activities along the route.

The Carnivelo will be leaving from Cumberland Piazza soon after 2.15 and cycling up to Avon Wildlife Trust at Bennetts Way where there’s will be refreshments!

Matti Hemmings, one of the UK’s leading BMX stunt bikers, will be performing and giving workshops between 3 and 5pm on the Portway outside the entrance to Bennett’s Patch.
In the Bennett’s Patch car park, there will be Cargo Bike games, ebike trials by Atmosphere bikes, Pavement Portraits by local illustrator Paula Bowles, materials for people to dress their bikes up with, mobile ‘Spicycle’ providing vegan food, Bike Zebo – bike storage company will bring a stall and bike parking,
We hope to have an array of bikes and riders joining us for the ride – penny farthings, tandems, cargo bikes, tall bikes and many more!
