Virtual Bollington Bikefest 2020

Extended until 30th September use our original routes

Raising urgently needed funds for local charities

UPDATE: We have extended the BikeFest through to the end of the month. Cycle your route anytime this month and post your results here for your medal and entry into the prize draw!

RIDE THE ROUTE: Ride the routes used for the last 8 years of the Bikefest and submit your results to be added to to the table. Or just choose a similar distance and ride that instead.


This is the ninth successive year of the event which attracted over 200 riders last year. Due to the Covid situation, this year we have moved to a virtual platform.

We have kept the three distance categories, you can pick the distance that best suits your ability as a rider. You can cycle either the previous years route or any route you choose. 
The event is to take place anytime between the 12th to 30th September 2020.

To get involved we need you to head over first to the Lions Just Giving page. Donate at least £10 and use your donation reference to register in one of the categories. On completion you will be sent a medal and entered into a prize draw.

Organised by the Macclesfield & District Lions Club, Bollington Town Council and Girl Guiding Cheshire Border. The beneficiaries this year are the local charities who are desperate for funds due to the lack of fund raising revenue. Last year we raised £3000 and we are, with your support hoping to raise the same or more this year.

A big thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters. The main sponsors this year are the Cheshire Cheese Company and the iTG Group both based in Macclesfield.
