Seaton Town Council has recently hosted the third annual Seaton CycleFest www.seatoncyclefest.co.uk . This year the event was even bigger and better than ever with two whole days of cycle events on Sat 30th June and Sun 1st July 2018.
Saturday 30th June saw the return of the Vintage Cycle Day kicking off the weekend-long Festival. Over 100 vintage cyclists descended upon Seaton with #VeloVintage www.velovintage.co.uk. Everyone was welcome to join the vintage cyclists up at Cliff Field Gardens for a retro style fete and family picnic and to browse through the stalls and enjoy some traditional entertainment.
Sunday 1st July welcomed British Cycling back to Seaton with the town centre turning into a racing course for the day and featuring some of the best cyclists in the South West. The Town Development Team working with 1st Chard Wheelers started the cycle races at 11am on the Criterium course which runs along the esplanade, up Castle Hill, down Seafield Hill Rd and onto Harbour Road before making its way to the Esplanade finish line via Beach Rd.
Alongside the cycling races was plenty of family entertainment at the Festival Village on Thury Harcourt Place with shopping, bouncy castles and other entertainment. There were also several beachside activities including Seaton Bay Paddlesports plus lots of refreshments from Seaton’s pubs, cafes and restaurants.
