Pedal Revolution

More and more of us are realising that cycling is an easy and family friendly way to get active, get out and about, reduce our travel costs and feel all the better for a little exercise on our bikes. At this year’s Clifftop Festival, local bike shop Pedal Revolution are providing the inspiration to families and new riders to kickstart their summer of cycling. And it’s all free thanks to Pedal Revolution.
On both days at the festival, you can have a free healthcheck for your bike with free minor repairs and tuneups at their mobile workshop. Store manager Marc Eales adds “Don’t let a flat tyre or sticky brake be your excuse not to ride your bike. Our trained Pedal Revolution mechanics are here both days to tune your bike into tip top shape while you wait – or why not watch, get stuck in and learn how to do it yourself with help from our mechanics at their free maintenance sessions at 10.30 and 11.30 each day.

Fun Fair

Once again the fun fair returns for all you thrill seekers! Situated just past the pitch and putt course you will find the waltzers, dodgems and other adrenaline raising rides!

Children’s Rides

If your little one isn’t quite suited to the fun of the fair then you will find some more children’s rides further along the clifftop past the emergency services. Rides include swings and the cups and saucers! Fun Karts will also be available on Sunday.
