Cycle racing is coming to Seaton


Exciting cycle races are promised at a new event in East Devon

Mark your calendars for Sunday June 19 when the Seaton Cycle Fest is taking place in Seaton, promising an exciting day of cycling and entertainment for all.

Whether you are a race team member, love watching cycling, or just want to come and join in the fun, there’s something for everyone.

The festival kicks off at the seafront at Fisherman’s gap at 12.30pm with an official opening by Town mayor Marcus Hartnell, Seaton majorettes and a BMX display from the amazing Inspiration shows.

The cycling races which start at 3pm promise to be exciting. Featuring the only town centre Crit in the area with a tight circuit, the course runs along the esplanade, up Castle Hill and around the Seafield Park, around marine place and onto Harbour Road before making its way to the finish line via Beach Rd.

Roads will be closed for the duration. Kids and families can try out the esplanade section of the course in the family fun races at 4.20pm and have the chance to win a brand new mountain bike courtesy of Cyclife Axminster.

Alongside the cycling will be plenty of family entertainment at the Festival Village on Thury Harcourt with shopping and fun including bouncy castles, art tents, martial arts displays, racing on static cycles, stilt walking Mad Hatters and Seaton Tramway specials.

There will also be beachside activities including sumo suits, cruises from Stuart Line, Seaton Bay Paddlesports, a relax station with massage and reiki plus refreshments from Seaton’s pubs, cafes, restaurants and Seaton Eats Boutique.

Art@Jubilee will feature at the artzone at Seafield /Jubilee Gardens with some great art, including cycle portraits by one of the artists in resident Rich Webster.

The Cycle Fest closes with a beachside chillout from 7.30pm with live onstage music from The Deep End with special guest Willie Nininger. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own BBQ and enjoy.

The Festival Team have worked closely with companies such as gold sponsors Cyclelife Axminster, Red Chilli, Tandoori Tonight and media sponsors the Midweek Herald.
