This year’s Lincoln Festival of Cycling will be opened by 16 year veteran broadcaster of the Tour de France, Ned Boulting.

Lincoln Bike Night will host a one off special evening with Ned Boulting, as he opens the Festival of Cycling, culminating in the UK’s most popular pro race, The Lincoln Grand Prix.

The show will take place on May 11 at 7.30pm at the Drill Hall.

Ned will bring a unique insight into the personalities that dominate the sport, including excerpts from his unique sell-out Bikeology show.

From the humble commuter to the winner of the Tour de France, Boulting will take an off-centre look at what it means to ride a bike, drawing on his own underwhelming adventures in the saddle to his 14 summers spent hurtling around France in pursuit of the sport’s biggest names including Mark Cavendish, Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Lance Armstrong.

Phil Crow, from Lincoln Bike Night told The Lincolnite: “Lincoln Bike Night are really excited to have Ned over at the Drill Hall for this show.

“It’ll be the only one he does before the Tour de France and it’s the opening event for the Lincoln Festival of Cycling.

“I saw his sell out show last autumn and it was hilarious!”
