Following last year's success, we're once again recreating the popular early 1900s Bike Carnivals of Ellesmere Port.

So bring your bikes and join a decorated musical bike ride with live music to the free festival at the National Waterways Museum to celebrate Ellesmere Port’s rich historic past of bicycles and boats.

The bike ride is 1.6 miles along a flat traffic-free canal towpath and marshalled roads, suitable for all ages. There will be prizes for the best-decorated bikes. Meet at Whitby Park and join the parade to cycle down to the National Waterways Museum in Ellesmere Port.

Further details on how to book your bike onto this parade will be available soon.
