Call into Life Cycle during the North Bristol Art Trail

Life-Cycle-UK-bike-artworkLocal charity Life Cycle UK is opening up its bike recycling workspace at Horfield Prison as part of the North Bristol Arts Trail, 10am to 5pm on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th November, offering the public a rare chance to see how a bike recycling project works in a prison environment.

The charity is encouraging local people to come and view its exhibition of cycling themed artwork, drop off an unwanted bike to recycle, or buy a bike already refurbished by the project.

From 10am – 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday, Life Cycle will be showcasing bicycle and cycling themed artwork from a number of local artists, photographers and craftsmen; from illustrations, photography and artwork, to tatoo’d bikes, laser-etching and paintings done by the prisoners themselves.

The weekend will also be a chance to purchase a bike already refurbished by the project, with around 50 bikes ready to view, try out and buy on the day. Adult bikes are mostly priced between £80 and £130, although there will also be a few higher quality bikes too.

Life Cycle will also be accepting donations of unwanted bikes throughout the weekend. Any bike, any age, any condition, they’d love to have it.

To find them, head to Horfield Prison car park – Cambridge Road BS7 8PS – and follow the bikes!
