Enjoying Bristol Cycling Carnival on "All abilities" bikes

The excellent “Freewheelin Carnival” in Bristol was one of the high spots of Bristol Cycling Festival.

Over 600 people of all ages dressed themselves and their bikes up and cycled from Queen Square, to Broadmead, to Cabot Circus, and back through Castle park to Queen Square.

The sun shone and we were surrounded by laughter, music and happy faces! Some great entries including the Elvis impersonators, the dinosaur, the chinese junk, the living room, complete with table and lamp stand, not to mention the tuneful pandemonium, the surfing bike, and the bike car!  Can’t wait for next year.

The highlight for me was the energy and excitement of the team on the “All Ability Bikes” pictured here. Very uplifting.
