Come See Us at Cycle Saturday

As the lead up to the Women’s Tour coming to Kettering continues, a day of FREE cycling-based activities will entertain the town on Saturday 6 June.

Kettering is hosting the finish of Stage Three of the Women’s Tour on 19 June and Kettering Borough Council is encouraging local residents to celebrate all things cycling in the lead up to the event. On 6 June, The High Street will be full of entertainment for the whole family to enjoy, and will be joined by ToBi the Women’s Tour mascot.

Visitors on the day will be able to join in the fun with all sorts of crazy bikes to have a go on, including bikes that make smoothies, play music and control Scalextrix races! Look out for the Penny Farthing riders and find out more about local cycling clubs and British Cycling.

Bring your own bikes along and visit Rebike’s bike doctor sessions or have your cycle marked with a security code by the Police so it can be identified and returned if it gets stolen.

Following on from the success of the Big Screen Movie Nights held over Christmas, 80s favourite E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, will be shown on the Market Place at 6pm.

Also, look out for the pink bikes which are now out in force around Kettering, having been adopted and decorated by various town centre shops excitedly awaiting the arrival of the Women’s Tour on 19 June.

To help support the event, there will be FREE parking on the 6 June in Kettering Borough Council car parks at London Road, Municipal Offices, Queen Street, School Lane, Wadcroft and Commercial Road. Kettering Teenage Market will also be taking place on the day on High Street, bringing a variety of stalls, showcasing local teenage talent, produce and innovative ideas, for all ages to enjoy.

Guy Holloway, Head of Community Services at Kettering Borough Council, said: “We can’t wait for the Women’s Tour to come to Kettering, and we’ve had a wonderful reaction from local people who are also looking forward to it. Cycle Saturday will be a great chance to help build excitement in the town with all sorts of bike-themed activities. Don’t forget there is free parking too!”
