July Origami Ride - Market Harborough

The July Origami ride starts in Market Harborough, Leicestershire - apparantly a medieval 'New Town' - whatever that means. The ride is mostly over the county border in Northamptonshire; the outward leg will be on quiet rural roads taking in the sights of the Battle of Naseby for any history buffs among you. Lunch will be at the Coach & Horses, Brixworth - renowned for the fastest change of horses in the days of the stagecoach! Return will be via the Brampton Valley Way. Full details here.

Pro-folding bikes demo

Inspired by the UK Origami rides some years ago like-minded folks in Germany and the Netherlands started their own rides, characteristically named 'Origamitours'. These rides are still going strong and, for a recent Birdy-themed ride through the centre of Hamburg, the organisers decided to register it as a demonstration - affording a police escort no less! This spectacle can be seen at our Flickr gallery here.
