After a fantastic festival last summer, the GT Bicycles Malverns Classic is back, from 25 to 28 August 2022. This three-day, family-friendly extravaganza has a packed schedule of riding, racing and other activities – climbing wall or dodgems, anyone?
Competitive types can sign up for everything from dual slalom to downhill and enduro, not forgetting the quad eliminator and pump track challenge.
There are events for children too, who get in free to the festival if they’re 12 or under, in the form of Rippers Racing and the Balance Bike World Champs. Or, just watch the action as an enthusiastic spectator and then head to the free funfair on site.
Off the race course, you can relive past glories in the retro-bike ‘Show and Shine’ and attempt to learn some new tricks on the (free) airbag.
Make sure not to miss the infamous lake ride or the Dirt Wars comp. If you want to get those pedals turning, there’s an expo village, demo bikes to try out and the XC loop is open all hours.
