Travel by bike


As part of the Festival’s continued commitment to reducing audience transport CO2 emissions, we encourage people to cycle to the Festival.

Bike to Glasto

We are pleased to announce that the Bike to Glasto scheme will run again in 2015. The “Bike to Glasto” service is for cyclists who want to ride to the Festival independently and lock their bikes up for free during the Festival. The lock-up opens from 06.30am on Wednesday 24th June and closes noon on Monday 29th June.

Cyclists can also choose to use our return luggage transport service from one of 17 luggage drop-off locations in Bristol and across Somerset for a charge of £10pp. The luggage service must be pre-booked by 17th June. Cyclists also have optional access (for just £5pp if they pre-book) to camp in the cyclist-only field with its warm showers and clean compost toilets.

Our information and booking website is www.biketoglasto.co.uk.  To keep in touch follow us on Twitter and the Bike to Glasto Facebook group.

Those wishing to make their own, self-contained way to the Festival by bike are still welcome to come and camp in the cyclists’ field. The Festival site is just a few miles south of Route 3 of the National Cycle Network, which runs between Glastonbury and Wells. For route planning advice, check out Cycle Streets’ Glastonbury Route Planner or the Dept of Transport’s Cycle Route Planner.

Sustrans guided ride

This year Sustrans will be coordinating a guided ride from Bristol and Bath.

They will support the riders by taking their luggage, leading the way and keeping the group together. They will offer mechanical support in case of any issues on the road, and even provide return travel by coach.

Registration is £15 and opens from 1st April. Click here for more information and to register.
