If you're coming down to Surrey to watch the Olympic Road Races on the weekend of 28-29 July, then the best place to park yourself is at the Surrey Hills Road Race Festival at Denbies Wine Estate, just off the A24. It's right next to the route and only a short walk from the Box Hill loop, so there's plenty of opportunities to see the race live. On top of that it's an official BBC Live Site, which means you'll be able to see the entire race on a BBC big screen, and there'll be masses of food and drink available on site too to keep you topped up through a long day of racing.
As well as all that there'll be a cycling expo within the grounds of Denbies Wine Estate, with some top brands showing off their wares and a load of stuff you can have a go at too. There's secure bike parking too, if you decide to wander over on two wheels. It should be a fantastic weekend of cycling-related fun, hopefully with a Team GB gold medal or two thrown in for good measure. Here's hoping...
The website for the festival is now live, and we'll be keeping it updated with all the latest news about who's coming and what's happening. As well as that there's a mailing list which we'll use to keep everyone informed about the event. If you want to get updates about the Festival, you can sign up on the event website, but to make it easier there's also a form below: just bung your details to get on the list!
