CYCLING TO SHAMBALA INDEPENDENTLY OF THE RED FOX CYCLE TOURS?
Shambala will always salute those who have ridden to the festival on a bike with a secure bike park (inside the event this year for peace of mind).
Please ensure you have adequate water, snacks and places to stay on the way. Feel free to use the maps provided below as inspiration if you fancy planning your own ride. Please note that they a few years out-of-date, so do your own research before going ahead
WHAT TO TAKE
Packed lunch and water
Cycling kit (including spare inner tube, working bike and waterproof coat and trousers!)
Cycling helmet (keep safe!)
Tent and sleeping bag
Locks and lights
Outrageous fancy dress for Saturday night Carnival & revelry!
The return journey is your responsibility. You can book your bicycle on the train (you must do this in advance) or arrange a lift back with a friend. We offer shuttle buses to the station (Market Harborough). You can also of course cycle back too!
