by Holly Blades

British frame and bicycle maker, Condor, will host the event over the weekend of the 7th & 8th July in the grounds of Chillington Hall. Located in Staffordshire, Chillington Hall is an 800-year-old stately home set in stunning ground and countryside. 

The anniversary festival will feature a sportive ride on Sunday 8th July designed to suit all abilities,with a 70-mile or shorter 70-kilometre loops to choose from.OTE Nutrition will be on hand at the feed stations to keep riders fuelled with their naturally-flavoured products. Fairtrade advocates, Karma Cola, will rehydrate riders at their post-ride #DrinkNoEvil bar, whilst Yorkshire butcher, Allums, will serve up their award-winning pies. 

Festival riders will be joined by pro athletes from JLT Condor, who will take part in the ride and heckle through the secret timed section, and those putting in fast times will be rewarded with prizes at the finish.The event village will host a maintenance zone, rider workshops, gelato stop, espresso bar, and food trucks, as well as a vintage Condor exhibition and demo bike zone. 

"We wanted to celebrate Condor's birthday doing the thing that unites us all: cycling!", explained Grant Young, Condor's managing director and son of founder, Monty Young.

"You don't need to be a Condor rider to take part. The festival is a celebration of British cycling and the sport. I encourage owners with vintage Condors to dust off their bikes because I'd love to see our older creations. Each bike has its own story to tell." 

Tickets for the festival are £50 for adults and includes entry to either ride, limited edition 70th anniversary gifts, post ride food, ice cream, and drinks.
