See the best from our Cycle Design Day

Featuring pop-up stalls from some of the best and most innovative cycling designers and artisans in London; open-air yoga for cyclists, workshops, talks and demos; live music and fantastic food and drink, it was an unmissable day for anyone who loves their wheels, design and sustainable travel.  

We also hosted bike refurbishment and upkeep workshops; paint and spray workshops; cycle yoga; live T-shirt printing; a head-to-head roller sprint challenge; interactive bike-based activities for children; a bike carousel and City of London Police cycle marking activation plus Rollapaluza sprint challenges.
