Bike to Bestival 2013... l'aventure à vélo avec la musique.
That's right we're doing it again. Undeterred by the organisational everest that was Bike 2 Bestival 2012... This year we're doing it all over again. Bigger, better and this year we'll probably persuade at least one person to cycle dressed as a Pirate. I think we all know who that will be.
So if you are attending Bestival this year... why not cycle there. Last year around 40 riders took part in a two day riding and camping adventure from London to Southampton raising over £11,000 for Cancer Research UK. During the summer of 2012 the riders met up to learn a handful of songs and sample some of the sumptuous ales, ciders and perrys that London town has to offer. Once on the road we had a campfire sing-along for those riders not able to join in with the London meet-ups and a warm-up gig before hitting the Big-Top stage to open the festival.
Dust off whatever instrument you have/aspire to play/think will sound the most annoying and join us in learning some drinking songs and sea shanties.
Those of you that came with us last year should be getting an email shortly detailing how to get a ticket this year. For the rest of you, keep your eye peeled (Or just follow us on Facebook and twitter for announcements because that ceratinly sounds much less painful.)
