Velo Festival

Recently, I was privileged enough to ride giant cycles round Cambridge with a few friends as part of the Velo Festival, which was celebrating the Tour de France and cycling in Cambridge. They were great fun and a unique excuse to get a day off college.

It was a great experience, with the vivid outfits and unusual cycles attracting lots of attention from passers-by and from the press. Many photos were taken of us and I found a few on Twitter with the #lovingcambridge which we were promoting during the day. This tweet was shown on the national coverage of the Tour de France a few times at the ad break:

The last time I'd ridden the cycles was of course the 2012 Paralympic closing ceremony, in similarly eye-catching costumes…
