Event Overview

Bourne CiCLE Festival. 31st August – 1st September 2019

The first ever Bourne CiCLE Festival took place in and around Bourne on 31st August – 1st September 2019

Event planning aimed to keep inconvenience to a minimum with a single road closure on West Street, Bourne on Saturday & Sunday. During the races there were rolling road closures along the route and it meant the suspension of parking in some areas just for the duration of each race. We planned the route so inconvenience is kept to a minimum and enjoyment to the maximum.

This event provided a great opportunity for Bourne and the district to benefit from visitors coming into the area. It was also an opportunity for villages and communities along the route to get together perhaps for a street party or picnic – and decorate their section of the route in the festival yellow. Think Tour of Yorkshire!

The event website was regularly updated with race details, timings, any route changes, entertainment & activities in Bourne. It also carried details of events along the route & best viewing point (which might be over your own garden gate!)

A big thank you to our race sponsors

South Kesteven is a dynamic, fast growing district with great ambitions. Since the turn of the decade its economic performance has out-stripped that of the broader region and the UK as a whole. Plans to build 14,000 new homes and create an additional 10,000 jobs by 2036 mean that growth is set to continue apace. And with below average property and staff costs, South Kesteven is an incredibly cost effective location from which to operate.

Centrally located and straddling some of the UK’s main North-South infrastructure – the A1 and the East Coast Main Line – South Kesteven is well positioned to provide access to the rest of the UK. London is just 70 minutes by train and Nottingham, with a population of over 325,000, is just 35 minutes away – providing excellent access to clients and skills.

Manufacturing and Agri-Food are particularly strong sectors within the district, building on its proud traditions in agriculture and engineering. The first running diesel engine and the UK’s first tractor were both developed in Grantham, South Kesteven’s largest town, in the 1890s.
