Cycle Del Mar, Margate

Colin Welsh, co-organiser of Cycle del Mar, tells us about this wonderful event, which takes place as part of #FirstFridayMargate. 

Join us as the sun sets for a group cycle along the Margate coastline and enjoy some alfresco grooves on the move! Led by a pimped-out rickshaw with a killer sound system and onboard DJ playing a soundscape of electronic beats. An opportunity for the local community and visitors to get together and get creative, decorating their bikes and themselves, lights, costumes, horns, bells and whistles… let your imagination cycle free! 

Organised by Col’s Kent Bike Tours & Solarwaves. CKBT is a new Margate-based business offering fun small group guided tours of Margate, wild camping trips, tours to Whitstable, Canterbury and more! 

Solarwaves is a collective of like-minded Margate locals producing events, music, art, and film who are hosting parties this summer at Barletta on the Roof on the 25th July, at The Sundeck on 3rd September, and supporting Faithless at Dreamland on the 20th November. 

The next free Cycle del Mar event is on Friday 6th August at 8.30pm, with Solarwaves DJ’s, Ricky Cox & Colin Welsh. Register for free to discover the start location 

Everybody welcome, come and join the ride!
