‘Bikes in Bloom’ is a decorative, creative and fun way to promote the gentler side of cycling and raise the profile of cycling within Bath. It will also brighten up and beautify the city for residents and tourists alike.
We aim to start a trend for decorating bikes, similar to those you see in many European cities such as Copenhagen and Amsterdam. We will be running workshops for people to make flowers from recycled materials, ready to decorate their own bikes.
Bikes in Bloom will also be part of the ‘Britain in Bloom’ judging in Bath in the third week of July. Decorated bikes will appear as street art; flash mobs on beautiful bikes will appear from nowhere and street theatre will intrigue, in the days leading up to, and during, the Britain in Bloom judging.
