Clonakilty Bicycle Festival 2020 is going global

This year the Clon Bike Fest (June 4-8, 2020) will widen its spokes, reaching wide and inviting bicycle lovers all over the world to participate in a series of events, online and on your bike – wherever you are!

While the organisers are still finalizing details of the weekend, they are offering this snap shot:

The main on-yer-bike event of the weekend will be a four-day ‘Photo Scavenger Hunt’ – open to small groups of bike lovers around the world. Register a team of two to six people (respecting your local COVID-19 guidelines) and prepare yourselves for four days of cycle hunting and photo posing – each item on the list will be assigned point values – and the team with the most points will win a ‘wheely’ wonderful prize pack! Scavenger hunt list will be published the evening of Wednesday, June 3 and entries will close mid-night on June 8. 

The Bicycle Festival will also host a live streaming ‘Historical Cycle’, ‘Bicycle Lovers’ Forum’ to discuss topics from ‘Cycling beyond the Pandemic’ to community bike shops to bike-buses, and everything in between. You can also expect live streaming Bike Repair with community bike mechanics from our very own Bike Circus as well as a virtual Cycle-in-Cinema and ideas and invitations to set up small cycle obstacle courses for your street!

T-shirts are being designed, digital posters and programmes will be available from May 15 – Please spread the word!
