Winchester CycleFest and the REAL Outdoors

Meeting people at shows is one of the greatest pleasures of running a business focussed on the REAL Outdoors.  We’ve had a great time and picked up so much knowledge from the John Austin New Forest Half Marathon, the Wiggle South Downs Epic, the Isle of Wight Big Wight, The Sky Rides in Southampton and Bournemouth, the Hargroves South Downs Challenge and the Outdoors Show.  And of course the Winchester Cycle Fest!

This weekend (Sunday 11th August) is the second Winchester CycleFest this year.  At the first one we made so many new contacts it’ll be like meeting old friends and getting to know new ones too.  We’re next to the fantastic Savage Skills bike team arena.

You won’t believe what these guys can do on a bike!

At the last two events we’ve been placed next to the Police -wasn’t me guvnor – who’ve become some of our favourite customers!

For those outside Hampshire, this is the ideal time to visit!  If you’re closer, this is an excellent day out.  Kids get a go on the most amazing bikes, more grown-up types will love spectating or racing in the evening.  There will be more entertainments than you can wave a stick at!  There is a genuine festival atmosphere and it’s an ideal excuse to see the ancient capital of England at its very best.

If you live closer to Surrey, why not come to our stand at the Guildford Cycle Festival the following Sunday (18th August) and meet my favourite brother as he answers all your mappy questions!

At our stands we’ll

  • be running our signature treasure hunt competition
  • be giving away prizes
  • be scribbling on maps!
  • have a great summer stock for your holidays in any of the National Parks
  • sell a few maps too!
We've got maps pretty-much anwhere you'd choose to holiday in Great Britain!
