We have teamed up with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s (RBKC) Bikeminded campaign to give a lucky reader the chance to win a ticket to ‘Bespoke Bicycles’ taking place on Saturday 15 October at the Victoria and Albert (V&A) museum.
Part of the V&A’s current Power of Making
exhibition, this all day workshop
will see you giving your bike a makeover, under the expert direction of designer, Amber Heptinstall.
‘You’ll be stripping down your saddle, cushioning its frame and reinventing your ride using leather’ says Amber, in what sounds like a very hands-on way to give your bike a stylish revamp!
The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea launched its three year cycling campaign, Bikeminded this summer, with the aim of encouraging more residents and workers in the borough to take up cycling, to boost their well-being and improve the local environment.
