A summer’s end soirée

SUNDAY 4 SEPTEMBER 2011
RECYCLE BIKES HEELEY

Our sold out event included the inaugural Shopping Bike Yard Racing World Championships, which was won by Ash Sims, as well as freshly pressed apple and pear juice from Abundance and Caffe Carino’s funky little coffee truck.

On the big screen we had an Italian cycling documentary playing as it got dark, followed by a short film about the Brooks saddle factory, then our main feature Breaking Away (1979). This coming-of-age film followed cycle fan Dave and his friends through shattered dreams, identity struggles and uncertainty about the future…but they win through in the end!

A very enjoyable night and we even managed to find a good weather window on what was otherwise a damp and blustery day.
