Rapha Tempest is a complete festival of road cycling and is the first of its kind in the UK; with rides and racing, bespoke on-site camping, visual displays, music, food and drink, workshops, films, children’s rides and plenty of partying. There will be guided rides in the days and evenings, a mini Super Cross (cyclocross), secure 24-hour bike parking, a rider recovery zone, and an on-site Rapha Cycle Club. For entertainment, there will be live music and DJs, an open-air cinema with film screenings and various scheduled workshops and talks, along with partner stalls and installations in the Festival Village.
Bringing your road bike is encouraged and there will be bike parking and a rider recovery zone where you can drop your bike off to be washed after riding in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Big screens will be set up for anyone wishing to watch the great race. Stages are easily accessible on two wheels - stage 1 is just three miles and stage two is 9 miles away from the festival site.
