Listing: Who’s at the festival

Enthusiasts from various disciplines are coming together to share their skills, knowledge and enjoyment of cycling at the Reading Cycle Festival.

Here is a directory of participants.

AW Cycles

AW Cycles, a local bike shop which has served Reading for decades, will have a range of e-bikes to try out.

The shop does lots to promote cycling, from putting on demo days to supporting community cycling activities.

Cycling UK Reading

Cycling UK Reading organises led rides and other cycling events, both on and off road to suit all abilities. Their rides are social and start from several points around Reading and explore the countryside of Berkshire and the surrounding counties.

They are organising three leisurely rides starting and ending at the festival – at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Click here for their rides schedule.

Stop by at their stall and find out about the group. They do rides as slow as 8mph and never leave anyone behind.

This organisation works to restore nature and empower people to connect with their local wildlife.

Its expert team works with volunteers to look after 85 nature reserves and four education centres, run hundreds of amazing events, and campaign to make nature’s recovery a reality.

Green Bike Food Company

Barely one year old, this Reading-based company focuses on providing the highest quality healthy food, delivered sustainably.

Their delivery fleet includes an electric assisted vehicle (EAV) pedalled by a rider, an electric tuk tuk and an electric van.

Meet the team and ask about becoming carbon-neutral.

Krua Koson

This local company offers tasty dishes which bring together  all the flavours of Thailand – sweet, sour and salty with just enough spice.

My Journey Wokingham

This organisation campaigns for sustainable travel.

Try their pedal-powered smoothie machine.

Reading Borough Council

The local authority is supporting this event and will be using the opportunity to publicise active travel plans.


Unicycling UK, the national association, and Unicycle Skills, an academy which does workshops and shows, will give you a taster on a unicycle.

They can also give you an idea of the wide range of things you can do on one wheel, from performing tricks in an urban setting to riding off-road.
