A Busy Weekend for the Project!

Phew, what a busy bicycle weekend!

The organisers of St Werburghs Farm Summer Fair invited us down on Saturday to be on hand to help people fix up any problems they had with their bikes or simply just to inflate tyres and oil chains! It was a fantastic day - the sun stayed out, our friends Cap'n Bikebeard made an appearance with their pedal-powered soundsystem, the tall bikes were in full effect and we met a bunch of very lovely people in the process....thanks to all - we look forward to the next one!!

Sunday morning was Bristol's first naked bike ride, a peaceful, imaginative and fun protest against oil dependency and car culture. A few of our team made a spectacular appearance, all on tall bikes and were part of a 200-strong bicycle street party!

And finally, Sunday afternoon saw us head down to the opening celebrations of Bristol Refugee Week in Queen's Square to do a spot more bike maintenance and help spread the word about the project. And of course, letting people have a go on the tall bikes!
