Meet the designer and test ride a bike this Friday – 23 July

The makers of Gocycle electric bikes will be on hand at the Design Museum in London this Friday – 23 July – to answer questions about their bikes and offer test rides.

Gocycle designer Richard Thorpe and company director Barney Craggs will be at an event called Shape of Things to Come? at the Design Museum at Shad Thames in London from 6-10pm.

Other attractions include sustainable book binding, making fashion accessories from old discarded jewellery, and transforming t-shirts into personal fashion statements.

Percussionist Matthew Benyayer will provide the entertainment – intentionally or otherwise – with plastic bucket performances throughout the evening.

Tickets are £5 in advance and include entry to all current exhibitions. More information on the Design Museum website.
