Creativity and cycling in the city

Earlier this month I met at Braes Bar with twenty-one others interested in cycling. As a focus for the evening I screened the documentary STILL WE RIDE made by Andrew Lynn & Elizabeth Press about Critical Mass in NYC and the attempts to force cyclists riding together to have a permit.

I've worked with Andrew on several occasions his enthusiasm for cycling and creativity is infectious.
Take a look at his website here

This weekend is Kill Your Timid Notion Festival, held at the DCA, I will be there with Jonathan Baxter from D-AIR (Dundee Artists in Residence) and Ian Nesbitt and Emily Wilczek from Nottingham's Annexinema, last year they staged a cycle powered event working with Magnificent Revolution to construct a ‘Cycle Powered Cinema’ under a river bridge in Nottingham.
