My good friends at Hybrid:Arts are doing it again – organising amazing events for everyone in Leamington Spa. Here’s the publicity blurb:

Hybrid Arts are closing Leamington’s Parade for the launch of Extraordinary Cycles on Sunday 26th July from 12-3pm. The day will be a celebration of cycling and cyclists, as part of the London 2012 Open Up Weekend celebrations. The event will include a flatland jam, cycle races for all ages, an interactive screen with film and a leisure ride
from Coventry-Leamington-Coventry organised by cycling legend, Mick Ives.

Extraordinary Cycles is a ground-breaking partnership project between Hybrid Arts and Coventry Transport Museum which celebrates the marriage of sport and art through exploring and developing the art form of dancing on bikes.

Join us in this event. Everyone is welcome.

If you plan to attend, please register for Extraordinary Cycles – either as a cyclist or volunteer – check out the Hybrid:Arts website. Those who register will be eligible for a free limited edition t shirt, which can be collected on your arrival. The deadline for pre-registrations is Monday 13th July.
