UK Bikes Project Gathering

15 Apr

Some of the 56a crew were up in Manchester last weekend for the grassroots/DIY bike conference (ie UK Bikes Project Gathering) with other groups around the UK to share stories, relate and socialise, skill share, discuss, and munch together. We discusses issues that relate to us as grassroots bike projects such as: gender in the workshop, culture and bikes, corporatism and the potential bureaucratisation of the bicycle. We also had workshops such as making a bicycle-powered generator and how to lead a group ride. Music and lots of bike rides to amazing places were also had.

A selection of photos is below. More can be found here.

Big ups to Nes and Ed of i Bike MCR/Pedal MCR!
