Luxembourg BIKE Festival is getting closer and closer

The Luxembourg BIKE Festival is getting closer and closer and we would be happy to welcome you during the weekend of 21/22 September. You will notice 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: to bring together all the actors involved in the field of cycling in Luxembourg (pro/amateur riders, general public, politicians, businesses…) in order to promote the image of the 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 organised during the 2 days in collaboration with our partner “La Pédale Mühlenbach”, as well as activities for the whole family (catering, children’s races, workshops, bike flea market…).

An Expo Village will also be set up to allow businesses to present and sell their products, as well as to offer visitors the opportunity to test ride their bikes.

Some information about the Festival:

New for 2019

Two rides of 40km + 60km will leave from the Boy Konen sports complex towards the south of the country to discover the exceptional Minett region. Departure at 11 am on Sunday. Each participant will receive a water bottle and a map with the route of the ride. Registration via bikefestival.lu and on the spot from 9 to 11 am.
