Sporting Event, Sat 14 Jan 2017, free entry


In conjunction with the Saturnalia Winter Warmer Real Ale Festival being held in the town, Green Events are offering you another chance to become a world champion, and all you have to do is pedal your mountain bikes the fastest.

Special chariots built using traditional Roman mild steel, vulcanised rubber and welding techniques have been commissioned for the event, and will race against each other and the clock to determine the 2016 World Champions. Designed to be pulled by two mountain bikes alongside each other, the winning team will have to demonstrate exceptional skill and courage, and will need to coordinate and cooperate fully as a single unit to overcome all challengers. The event is open to teams of three people (2 riders + 1 charioteer) over the age of 16 years.

Free for spectators
Event Registration Fee: £20.00
