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 2016. 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.

Cyclists can also choose to use our return luggage transport service from one of more than a dozen luggage drop-off locations in Bristol and across Somerset, for a small charge (it was £10pp in 2015). Full 2016 information will be posted when we have it.

Our information and booking website is  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. 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

Sustrans will again be coordinating a guided ride from Bristol and Bath or Glastonbury 2016.

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.
