The proposed cycling festival would take place during two weeks this September

Cycling enthusiasts are getting together to try and organise a cycling festival for the city of Bristol.

The proposed 'Bristol Cycle Festival 2010' would take place during two weeks from 11 to 25 September.

The organisers, described as "some enthusiasts who love bikes", have already secured some funding from Bristol City Council Cycling City team.

A launch event will be held on 5 May at 7.30pm, at 35 King Street, and anyone who wants to get involved is welcome.

Anyone interested in taking part in the event, is urged to come up with an idea for a "great bike-related event" that could make up part of the festival.

Some people have already suggested things such as guided rides, bike films, practical demos and workshops, bike-powered shows and a history of cycling exhibition and talk.

Organisers want to get "every bike enthusiast in Bristol" on board.

More information can be found at the Bristol Cycle Festival website.
