The premier event of the c5alive calendar, I'm pleased to announce we've been invited back to the Brooklands Cycle Festival for 2012 on Sunday 16th September.  This has always been my absolute favourite event of the c5alive calendar - more details nearer the time.

An excellent venue, Brooklands has always been very supportive of c5alive.  This is a date well worth circling in your diary   8)

I have just received the following email from Donna at Brooklands Museum ;



CYCLE FESTIVAL
SUNDAY 16th SEPTEMBER  2012
INVITATION & ENTRY FORM

We are pleased to invite you to exhibit at our annual Cycle Festival on Sunday 16th September 2012.

The event is open to all types of non-motorised bicycles & scooters .
Besides enjoying the company of fellow enthusiasts and their cycles, exhibitors will have full access to Brooklands Museum’s 32-acre site and its attractions.  (The Concorde Experience is a charge of £4 Adults, £2 children).  There will also be the opportunity for your Team/Club to try out the circuit at Mercedes-Benz World, subject to conditions on the day.

There is no entry fee for the Exhibitors from your Team/Club or for children bringing a scooter who want to enter our Scootathon, but we would be grateful if you will complete and return the booking form if you wish to take part as Exhibitors with your Team/Club.
 Extra tickets at a discount on normal Museum entry prices can be purchased in advance using the attached booking form: please note that anybody arriving who are not exhibiting will be asked to use the Museum’s main public entrance and purchase the appropriate entry ticket.

As this is a one-day public event, we do ask that you commit to arriving by 10.00am and to staying on display until the 17.00 closing time.  No camping or overnight facilities are available. No dogs except Assistance Dogs are permitted.

If you would like to join us for a very enjoyable day, please complete and return the entry form as soon as possible. Final details & your Exhibitor passes will be sent out about 10 days before the event.  A stamped addressed envelope would be very much appreciated. We look forward to hearing from you shortly and seeing you at Brooklands Museum on September 16th.




Donna Hopton,
Event Manager.

I'll confirm that with Donna when I next see her . We've been lucky enough to enjoy the +1 on previous visits so I'm hopeful we'll get the same this year.

It's great to see the list growing  :)

I visited Donna at Brooklands yesterday and she confirmed the tickets will grant access for a Sinclair C5 owner plus 1 , same as in our previous years coming to this event  8).

Access will be via the Campbell gate (again, same as in previous years) and the closing date for this list is Monday September 3rd . This will give Donna time to print off our tickets and get them out to me. I will distribute the tickets on the day at the Campbell gate entrance. It's a system that has worked well for us over the years  ;)

There will also be a "scooterthon" for the youngsters so dont forget those scooters.

As before, remember to bring along your cycle helmet . These are required for anyone taking part in the scooterthon and are also a requirement for anyone taking to the track at Mercedes Benz World. No crash hat, no entrance to the track (it's MB World's rules).

So, it's really shaping up to be a superb event especially with the Raleigh Chopper owners & other cycle clubs invited. Hope to see as many Sinclair C5's as possible , especially as this is our premier event and arguably the most fun.  Lets see if we can outnumber those Choppers again  :D

See you there !  ;D
