Yes! It’s back! And we need YOU!
ARTCRANK London is now accepting artist submissions for our 2011 show. The show will be featuring at Look Mum No Hands! on 19 August for our fantastic second year. If you’re an artist in London and would like to be considered for the show, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a samples of your previous work — bike-related or not. Please do NOT submit poster designs for the show. All entries must be received by July 10, 2011.
ARTCRANK is a showcase of bicycle-inspired original poster artwork that people can enjoy looking at and afford to take home. ARTCRANK began in Minneapolis in 2007, and has expanded to Denver, St. Louis, Portland, San Francisco, Des Moines, and London.
Halfords Series Finale!
I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday at the Halfords Tour Finale at Canary Wharf. The speed those cyclists go around the track is enough to make you dizzy.
The sight of a load of cheerleaders chanting we love Halfords was one I will not easily forget! I think everyone was suitably amused.
ITV4 will be broadcasting the finale tonight at 8pm.
Despite professional racing not really being “my thing” the atmosphere at the event was fantastic and when you hear the engine of a BMW motorbike roaring to keep up with cyclists you can appreciate the sportsmanship.
Bike Polo Taster sessions this weekend
At the Hackney Downs on the 18th and 19th of June from 11am until 9pm.
“Everyone’s welcome, we recommend bringing your own bike (one that you feel most comfortable on) and we’ll introduce you to the world of bike polo (mallets, balls and some loaner bikes will be available).”
