Bicycology is a biketour which will be travelling from London to Lancaster (via Nottingham) this August. Form Lancaster it will be heading to the Climate Action Camp. It will visit Nottingham on Saturday 19th August. On their tour, the Bicycologists will be giving free bike maintainence workshops, holding Dr Bike sessions - come and get your bike fine-tuned - organising bike games and playing around with some crazy tall wobbly bikes; there will also be information and examples of alternative forms of energy, including some pedal-powered gadgets.
We'll also be bringing along our trusted portable sound-sytem - Pedals. Pedals will soon be celebrating her first birthday, and she'll be celebrating a lot en route - helping us send out a loud and clear message about bikes.
Bicycology is a collective formed by riderswho wanted to build on their shared experience of the 2005 G8 Bike Ride and organise future events of a similar nature.
By focusing on cycling we aim to persue our vision of a just and sustainable world through a combination of education, entertainment and creative direct action. The collective was formed during a weekend meeting at the Sumac Centre in November 2005 with 15 original members.
