Cycle to East Festival


If you are in London what are you up to this Friday/Saturday/Sunday/Monday/Tuesday?

Cleaning my bike. Trying out one of your London cycle routes. Watching all 3 of the Lord of the Rings in one go. Doing some ironing. Selling my horse.

Well, if your not too busy then starting on Friday (5th) and running through to Tuesday (9th) there is the East Festival. The fixie bike (standard when wanting to promote things and at the same time look cool) pictured above has been designed by Pete Fowler (cult artist I’m told) to promote the event.

But what is this magical event that they are so keen for cyclists to visit?

It is going to involve performances around different venues in East London. The idea is that you cycle between each one. The first performance is at 2pm, then one at 4pm and finally 6pm. Each one lasting around an hour. The music is going to include folk music, British Jazz, rap and alt-folk. That is just the first day!

There is also bike polo matches, cooking lessons and bike tours of East London.

If any of that tickles your fancy then checkout East Festival on VisitLondon.
