Toddlebike Pre-Balance Bike
- Toddlebike2 - a unique "Pre-Balance" bike suitable for Toddlers as soon as they can confidently walk (usually around 18 months)
- Widely accepted by cyclists and the cycling media as being THE BEST first step towards independent riding
- Indoor AND outdoor use so LOADS of practice time without pressure or frustration at the pace of each individual child
- Super lightweight - just 0.8kg - 3 times lighter than most balance bikes, scooters or ride-ons
Toddlebike will be bringing their amazing 'pre-balance' bikes so that the 1-2 year olds can join in with the Balance and Pedal Bike Fun. Bring your child along and see them take their first steps towards cycling, show off their skills and take part in a mini race.
Mountain Bike and BMX Pump Track
We are thrilled to have Pump Traxx at the festival this year with their BMX and mountain bike pump track.
Suitable for all ages and ability levels, everyone can have a go on the pump track.
We are very excited to welcome Trials Addict for the first time to Eastbourne Cycling Festival.
Trials Addict will be providing their exciting display of trials riding throughout the day, using their full rig and PA system.

Yedoo have dedicated almost 15 years to scooters and "products on wheels" in general. It all started in 1998 with our visit to Las Vegas "Sport Show" where we were impressed by the variety of in-line skates, skateboards, and mostly scooters. We realised that these practical vehicles were missing and we decided to do something about it.
We are thrilled to have Enigma Bicycleworks exhibiting in the Festival Village.
ENIGMA is something of a rarity these days --- a British company actually building bicycles by hand here in the UK. Based in the rolling fields and forests of rural East Sussex amidst some of Britain's finest cycling country and using the very latest metal technologies, our aim is simply to build beautiful, handcrafted, great riding bikes to challenge the best the world has to offer.
