Don't miss out on this great Cycling Festival on the 21st & 22nd May

Lots of things to see and do for all the family Including Besopke Family Rides.
Bespoke will be leading family rides from the Eastbourne Festival Village over the two days of the Festival. The rides will be either on cycle paths or routes which will be "traffic quiet", and will showcase Eastbourne and its attractions. Individuals and families are welcome to come along and have some fun on two wheels.

Look out for the Bespoke banner in the Festival Village and sign up for a ride.

Bespoke is a cycling campaign group for Eastbourne, started by local residents in the summer of 2008. The organisation is still evolving and new members are always welcome. Membership is free

Bespoke is keen to embrace all ages, fitness levels, and expectations. Cycling should be seen as a normal means of transport for going shopping, to school or work. It is not just a lycra-clad leisure activity which has special routes away from other vehicles.

Bespoke aims:
- to make cycling safer in Eastbourne
- to encourage people to consider cycling
- to advise cyclists on the practicalities of safe cycling and consideration for motorists and pedestrians
- to advise companies to make provision for their employees and customers who might cycle
- to help transport bodies consider cyclists when planning routes / road layouts
- to educate motorists to become more "cycle-aware"
- to form links with other groups
