Bicycology is a biketour travelling from London to Lancaster (via Nottingham).
Form Lancaster it will be heading to the Climate Action Camp. It visited Nottingham on Saturday 19th August. On their tour, the Bicycologists gave free bike maintainence workshops, holding Dr Bike sessions - 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.
They let me ride the 'very' tall bike about, and I have to say it's a whole different perspective up there ....... :-)
Bicycology is a collective formed by riders who 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, here in Nottingham, in November 2005 with 15 original members.
