Rutland Walking and Cycling Festival 2017

20th May - 2nd June 2017

Discover where walking and cycling can take you this summer. Every year we encourage people to take to their feet and bike to feel the benefits of walking and cycling. They are both recommended activities to lose weight, get more active and become healthier.

The Rutland Walking and Cycling Festival is back for 2017 following huge success over the last eight years. The festival is a fun packed celebration of Rutland and its glorious countryside and will host led walks and bike rides to suit all ages and abilities, perfect for a family day out. The residents of Rutland are encouraged to join the many visiting walkers and cyclists who travel from far and wide.

The festival includes on average 3-4 led walks and rides around the historic county of Rutland each day which are suitable for all ages and abilities. It's a perfect opportunity to meet new people with similar interests, explore different areas across the county and refreshments are available on many of the walks and rides.
