Prescott bike festival 11

Prescott Bike Festival, staged to take place at the Prescott Hillclimb, Cheltenham on the weekend of 14-15 April has been postponed due to "adverse ground conditions".

With all the rain and even more forecast for this week, organisers have reluctantly agreed with the land owners that to go ahead would be foolish and unsafe. Currently the exhibitor and public parking areas are unusable.

Prescott Bike Festival is the biggest annual fundraiser for the charity, Blood Bikes.

Event Organiser Gordon Downie said: “It has always been our goal to host Two Amazing Days – One Winning Weekend. We know that we could not deliver this promise if we were to proceed next weekend. We feel that, rather than relying on wishful thinking, that it’s better to reschedule to a more favourable and warmer time in the year."

The event has now been pushed back to 16-17 June 2018, which coincidentally falls on father's day weekend. That's one neatly packaged gift in the bag!

All advance ticket holders, Run the Hill entries, competition winners and exhibitors will be contacted by the organisers directly via email. If you have any questions, you can use the Contact Us form on Prescott Bike Festival website here
