Jour : 3 septembre 2019

The Luxembourg BIKE Festival is approaching giant steps and we would be happy to welcome you during the weekend of 21/22 September. You note that the mention Luxembourg now precedes the BIKE Festival. Indeed, the City of Luxembourg and the Ministry of Tourism officially support this second edition which takes place in the context of the European Mobility Week.

The idea of the Festival remains the same: bring together all the actors in the field of cycling in Luxembourg (pro/amateur riders, the general public, politicians, shops …) in order to promote the image of sport and to motivate even more visitors to opt for cycling, either as a means of transport or as a sporting activity in itself.

Mountainbike races for all age groups will be organized during the two days in collaboration with our partner « La Pedale Mühlenbach », as well as events for the whole family (catering, children’s races, workshops, second hand bike sales …).

An Expo Village will also be set up to allow businesses to present and sell their products, as well as to offer visitors a Bike / E-bike test.

Some information about the Festival:

New in 2019

Two 40km + 60km family bike rides will start at the Boy Konen Sports Complex to the south of the country for a family tour and discover the unique Minett region. Departure at 11am on Sunday.
