Warminster Wobble 2015 - free cycling festival

Wiltshire's No.1 cycling festival - 13/14 June 2015 & it's completely free...

The Warminster Wobble, now in its sixth year, is to be held on the weekend of 13/14 June in the Warminster town park.

Wiltshire’s most popular cycling festival is entirely free and this year the programme is full of inspiration and local brilliance reflecting the festival’s growing popularity.

2015 welcomes the return of British freeride pioneer and current UK fourcross champion Chris Smith, fresh from the British cycling awards and following a big year. Chris and friends will be shredding the ramps in the skatepark showing what it takes to be one of the UK’s top pro-riders.

We are also very excited to announce the signing of the Addo MTB Stunt team, hailing from North Wales, they are a team full of potential and are the UK’s top up-and-coming trials riding teams. They follow in the footsteps of legends like Danny Macaskill and phenonemal success of Road Bike Party. This is going to be something special and not to be missed!

The main festival kicks off on Saturday 13th of June at 11am in the Warminster Town Park. There is the usual mix of trade stands, children’s entertainment and unusual bikes. This year the MTB time trial is back, checkout the TT Hall of Fame, only a select few have held the trophies, can you achieve immortality? This year you can also demo bikes from legendary Sheffield-based brand Cotic.

Food will be supplied by among others, local legend Claude the Butler, who will be supplying  Barista-made coffee and homemade cakes his vintage Citroen van. A salad and oyster bar will be on hand to keep you fed with healthy treats.

Need tuning? We will also have Rob Rowe from FinelyTunedRide as our Dr Bike. Rob has worked as a bike mechanic for many racing teams and UK cross country champion Olly Beckinsale. He will be there to advise on and solve any mechanical issue you may have.

On Sunday 14th June there is a series of rides from 11am from the town park. There are road rides of various lengths, guided mountain bike rides and a family ride.

Watch out for posters around town, news in the local press and website links.

Event organiser Colin French said, “Last year’s event was incredible and we were very lucky with the weather. This year there is already a lot of interest and we have increased the amount on offer at the festival because of new funding we have secured. Everyone seems to be talking about it. The MTB time trial was very popular last year. People came down from London to take part in it. And the wonderful thing is this whole event is free thanks to support we get from the Town Council, local charities and businesses.”
