Ride + Design

We have a big design industry in Bristol and we have a lot of people riding bikes. For a lot of us that live here they both go together. All of us here at Headset Press are in the design industry. It’s how we met and it’s behind why we started writing and riding together.

Ride + Design is a day long event that explores the relationship between bikes and design with talks, activities and films that cover branding, fashion and culture. Brought together by the West of England Design Forum there are talks from some interesting people including James Fairbank of Rapha, Will Butler-Adams (Brompton), Nick Larsen (Charge Bikes), Dom Thomas (Genesis), Ben Spurrier (Condor Cycles), James Greig (Vulpine) and Anna Glowinski (AnaNichoola).

Tickets cost £25 and it takes part in the Arnolfini, Bristol on Saturday 15 June, from 9-5pm. There’s also an after party! Visit the site to book tickets and for more details.
