Following two successful years, the popular Doncaster Cycle Festival returns on Sunday, 19th June 2016, once again bringing fast-paced cycle racing to the heart of Doncaster.
Due to the growing success of the Festival the current organisers, Doncaster Wheelers, have teamed up with a professional events company who will bring a wealth of experience and professionalism to grow the event even further.
Retford-based company, TLS Events Ltd, have been appointed as official Doncaster Cycle Festival partners. Mike Bennett, the Projects and Events Manager at the firm, explained their vision: “TLS Events ltd are proud to be involved in a number of sporting events and saw the huge success and potential that Doncaster Cycle Festival has to offer. The event clearly brings a boost to the town and the youth cycling development locally, and we will help the existing organisers put on an even more exciting edition next June.”
Heading into its third year, the Festival organisers have set their goals for an even bigger year. Martin Maltby, Doncaster Wheelers President and Festival Race Director, said: “With the popularity of the event in its first two years growing faster than we expected, we needed to look further afield for logistical support to take the event to a higher level for the cycling community of Doncaster.”
Martin continued, “With the recent announcement of the Tour of Yorkshire stage finish in Doncaster, this is an ideal opportunity to put Doncaster firmly on the cycling map. There has been fantastic support for our event since day one from Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council and local businesses, such as Whinfrey Briggs who were our headline sponsors in 2014 and 2015. With this type of sponsorship and support we are all hoping that cycling in Doncaster will continue to grow.”
The Festival takes place on Sunday, 19th June 2016. Entry is free to the public and features many activities and exhibitors as well as the action-packed day of racing itself. Simply turn up on the day and enjoy the Festival atmosphere!
