The Bicycle Academy launch party


Copy and images by Nick Rearden.

If you remember our feature back last year when The Bicycle Academy was just due to start its crowdfunding campaign, the hot news is not only that the money was raised and premises found but the building work and fitting-out is completed with the final step being Saturday’s launch party.

Founder Andrew Denham, along with legendary frame builder Brian Curtis who will be heading up the teaching at Britain’s if not the world’s first crowdfunded bicycle training academy hosted an evening celebration to thank the first 183 inductees who between them raised £41,690 through peoplefund.it thebicycleacademy.org/crowd-funding/
at the end of last year.

Based in heritage industrial premises in Frome, Somerset the Bicycle Academy offers training in traditional frame making techniques as well as the full range of wheelbuilding and mechanical skills that go into building a complete bicycle.

  • Proper path riding
  • Waiting to go. Hoping the postman brings new bolts for the front mudguard tomorrow.
  • Do I? A few duff parts though for the money compared to competitors.  @iamspecialized #tarmac2015 #tarmac #specialized
  • Some @thewonderfulsocks came in the post today. #sockgame is getting stronger at Headset Press
  • The day started off great, a mechanical means I'm getting the bus home.
  • There's a tunnel up ahead, can't believe a train used to run through here. Been past it loads and not noticed this huge tunnel
  • Adam at @cycleexif with his Swinnerton shortly after finishing the ride @eroica.cc @eroicabritannia #eroica #eroicabritannia
  • Off for a long slow ride tomorrow. Will be going through some tunnels and need a light, decisions! Can't beat the little volt 300 on the right. The 1200 is brighter than a light house.
  • Climbing at Eroica. What a ride @eroica.cc @eroicabritannia #eroica #eroicabritannia
