We had a really fantastic time at the Orbital Bike Festival with lots of interest in our lightweight kids bikes – it was great to chat to so many families that love cycling and are really keen to get their kids having fun on bikes. Thanks so much to the event organisers 🙂
We also managed to leave our stand (occasionally!) and have a good look around at what the festival had to offer, the events where excellent and there were some lovely exhibitors. Here’s a little round up of just a few that caught our eye last weekend (there are so many more we could add to this list, hopefully we will have time to share a few more next week!)
Cycle cleaning products aimed at the connoisseur who takes as much pride in maintaining their pride and joy as they do riding it!
If you have a budding Chris Froome at home you may want to direct them to our tips for maintaining your bike along with a visit to Purple Harry’s facebook page to keep up to date with the latest innovative products they stock like the bike floss shown above.
We want to live in this cafe, don’t you!? “We like riding our bikes and drinking coffee. We had an idea about combining stuff we like to make something special. We found a great space in a great location, cleaned it up and called it ‘look mum no hands!’ We show films and cycle sport on our big projector screen. We have a workshop and two great mechanics who fix bikes. We have people who are really into making good food and coffee. We also sell BEER!”
Look Mum No Hands was also the starting point for an overnight race or Audax cleverly named “Look Mum No Sleep” from their cafe in London to the Orbital Festival at Goodwood Motor Circuit in Chichester – over 200km.
