We’ve just sent out our VIP invitations to various celebrities who we hope to have at Velove. Whilst we’re not quite big enough (yet!) for the likes of Lance Armstrong and Alberto Contador to come and visit, we have some fantastic ideas of other cycltists we’d like to invite.

Ex pro-riders such as Todd Herriott and George Hincapie would be very welcome, being able to give us an insight into professional life, as well as inspire the younger members of the Bike Festival to get on their bikes and practice if they really want a stab at the top.

We’ll keep you posted.
