Cycle to WOMAD with Red Fox Cycling

Posted on 18 November 2019

“Take all your fears about doing a long-distance bike ride to a festival and remove them from the equation. Logistics? Luggage? Food? Camp spots? Safe, quiet route? Navigation? Too hard? Too slow? All sorted. What’s more, you’ll bond with a wonderful, diverse group of fellow cyclists. Just a great idea, brilliantly executed. Go for it.” Lucy L, Bristol to Shambala 2019 (via TripAdvisor)

At WOMAD, we’re always looking for new ways to reduce our environmental footprint. In our recent 2019 festival survey, we asked you which 5 things would convince you to cycle to WOMAD 2020. This is what you told us.

 

BAGGAGE SERVICE FOR MY FESTIVAL KIT
The Red Fox team will transfer your bags and camping equipment in their support vehicle. They’ll hand it back to you at the WOMAD gates.

A SAFE ROUTE

Rides will be guided, which means one of our Red Fox guide team will navigate. We’ll plan a quiet route, using country lanes wherever possible,
and we’ll risk assess the route for safety beforehand.

ACCESS TO A BIKE
You’ll be able to hire a hybrid, road or (new for 2020) electric bike from us. We’ll have it waiting for you at the ride start point, and we’ll take it back
from you as you arrive at WOMAD.

 

FESTIVAL FREEBIES
Every rider will receive a FREE weekend pass to use the La Di Da Loos on-site and every rider will be entered into a prize draw to win a pair of
WOMAD Spa tickets (worth £140 each).

GETTING HOME
The Red Fox team can take you, your bike and your camping equipment back to London or Bristol on Monday 27th July after WOMAD. Just select
the ‘return’ option when you book.
