Can’t wait to see what comes of all this!
Nick Hand and Robin Mather both have workshops at Centrespace in Bristol. Robin designs and builds bicycles and also teaches at the Bicycle Academy in Frome, Somerset. Nick, a graphic designer and photographer, runs a not-for-profit letterpress print shop that teaches folk how to compose and print. Nick is no stranger to long-distance rides, in 2009 he completed a 6,500-mile ride around the British Isles recording stories of artists and craftspeople along the way for the Slowcoast project.
A few kids from Los Angeles have been making these patches and handing them out around town and at the local races. I hear they’re even throwing a race this weekend, anybody wanna share the info on that? Nothing makes me happier than seeing the youth of today making stuff, especially when it’s about bikes and it makes a statement. You can follow them on Instagram @armedwithabike!
Cannondale & DSC have teamed up to create the livery of their 2014 TDF cycles. Each rider has their spirit animal adorned on their TT in a style akin to native American Haida style. Go Green.
