It always starts the same way, you see something that piques your interest (and you know it’s probably a bit daft to start off with), and then like a seed it takes shape in your mind, growing slowly, developing into something a little more each day.

Bike blog CycleLove (http://www.cyclelove.net/) is turning one, and hosting a ride, meetup and charity raffle in aid of Cyclists Fighting Cancer to celebrate!
So, if you like bikes, design, photography, beer or any combination thereof, you should head down to London’s finest cycling cafe to meet some similarly lovely bike-minded folk — and win some fantastic prizes.
The CycleLove 1st Birthday Bash Meetup
Tuesday 29th of January, 6.30-10pm
Look Mum No Hands, 49 Old Street, London
IN AID OF CYCLISTS FIGHTING CANCER
