It’s Bike Week
Posted by chdot on June 9, 2008
It officially starts on Saturday and gets off to a flying start in Edinburgh on Thursday with the Bike Week Film Festival.
The opening event is also a book launch for ‘Heroes, Villains and Velodromes: Chris, Hoy and the British Cycling Revolution’ by Richard Moore, to be published by HarperCollins on 16 June. (Advance, publication copies will be available for sale at this event.)
Donald Walker, sports editor of The Scotsman, will chair a discussion afterwards with Richard Moore and the directors, of Standing Start, Finlay Pretsell and Adrian McDowall.
The Friday and Sunday film shows will have pioneering Mountain Biker Jacquie Phelan answering questions! Jacquie is in Scotland for a few weeks, riding around, researching for a book and adding her inimitable style to a series of events. Seen here in Bingham with a group of people who hadn’t cycled for YEARS. Watch the video or read her own account.
