Bespoked returns to Bristol this year - tickets on sale now (+ gallery)

Show spreads across two venues, events include Handmade Cycling Goods and Design Show, and Constructors’ Challenge

Bespoked, the UK’s top showcase for handmade bicycles and cycling accessories, returns to its spiritual home of Bristol this April after last year’s excursion to London’s Lee Valley VeloPark.

The event runs from 17-19 April and takes place across two venues – Brunel’s Old Station will play host to framebuilders, some new, some returning, while the Arnolfini arts centre on the waterfront will host two new events.

Those are the Bespoked Handmade Cycling Goods and Design Show, and the Bespoked Constructors’ Challenge.

The former provides a platform for designers and makers of what organisers describe as “cycling’s most beautiful and desirable accessories, design and apparel.”

The venue will also have a retrospective exhibition of pictures by photographer Camille McMillan.

Meanwhile, the Bespoked Constructors’ Challenge “aims to broaden and diversify the appeal of bespoke bicycles,” say organisers.

They add that “five teams of builders, designers and end users have been chosen to exhibit a custom-built bicycle created for a specific and real task.

“The event will demonstrate the diversity of possible uses for this simple and adaptable machine - and that they form a viable alternative to the car for everyday work and daily life.”

Bespoked 2015 takes place from 17-19 April 2015, and tickets can be booked here.
