The bomberdrome, the UK’s only bicycle wall of death, was a big attraction as daredevils defied the laws of gravity on an array of bikes.

There was fun for children as they tried out weird and wacky cycles, including mini penny farthings, long bikes, short bikes and a tandem.

The county council had a stand at the park offering information on cycling opportunities in the county and there were vintage bikes on show, as well as trade stalls.
