STOCKTON Cycling Festival is back this weekend.

An action packed weekend of cycling based fun will spin onto Stockton Riverside on both Saturday and Sunday with something for everyone.

As well as road racing there will be some of the very best extreme bike battle riders entertaining the crowds and a number of activities for children.

Stockton Borough Council’s cabinet member for health, leisure and culture, Councillor Jim Beall, said: "Whether you’re an experienced cyclist, a novice rider or a family looking for a great time, Stockton Cycling Festival is definitely worth a visit. It is always a fantastic weekend whether you choose to watch the action, take part in the free festival activities or simply soak up the atmosphere.”
