It was smiles all round for the organisers of Bikefest after this year’s event proved a spectacular success.

Bikes, bands, music, the chance to do an Extreme Wheelie were part of what made it an unmissable day out, with bright sun for most of Sunday just adding to the fun.

Rugby First managing director Aftab Gaffar said: “We were extremely pleased with how Bikefest went. It attracted thousands of people into the town from the local area and further afield providing a fabulous boost to the local economy as well as showcasing Rugby to first-time visitors.

“This year we expanded the event and used other areas of the town including Caldecott Park and St Andrew’s Church and this proved to be very popular, especially with families.”
