Celebrate Bristol's year as European City of Sport 2017 and pedal to your heart’s content along its cycle-friendly routes.
In Bristol's year as European City of Sport, jump on your bike with a free self-made cycle tour around Bristol. Make your way across the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge (free for bikes to cross), stopping to admire the breath-taking views across Bristol to the Mendip Hills.
Just the other side of the bridge you’ll find Ashton Court Estate, a cyclist’s dream. Zip along the paths overlooking the city or go off-road on the special Timberland mountain bike trails – all without spending anything at all.
Continue your city break with a wallet-friendly around Bristol’s city centre. It's free, easy to navigate and you’ll find extra wide cycle lanes, free bike pumps and lots of bike parking.
Of course there's plenty more ways to get active in Bristol, from bluebell walks in Leigh Woods to stand-up paddle boarding on Bristol Harbourside. And keep your eyes peeled for some top sporting events in Bristol throughout 2017 as the city celebrates being European City of Sport, including the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup at Bristol County Ground, home to Gloucestershire County Cricket Club.
A unique celebration of silent film and slapstick comedy, the festival offers a unique chance to watch silent films with a live orchestra along with a VIP list of guests and celebrities sharing their passion for this genre.
