We jumped on a plane and soared under a bright sun, southwards, to Bristol. We met friends from near and far and enjoyed strolling around the busy but superbly organised show. Coffee from Look Mum No Hands led to beer as the afternoon wore on and perenial favourite Mud dock provided an excellent place for food, more conversation and reflection on the day. Sunday started with a breakfast in Rocotillo's then another quick zip around the show, a few more too-short-hello's and then being flung back through the azure sky, homewards. What a fine way to spend the weekend.
Highlights of the show for me in terms of bikes: Darren Crisp's commuter, off road and road bikes and Robin Mather's beautiful bikes - particularly the pink commuter - so, so clean.
It was also excellent to see Shand Cycles hand built production models. I'd strongly recommend a long look if you are in the market for a disc brake 'cross or all-road style bike. I've uploaded some pictures to flickr. Enjoy.
