Bikes at Glastonbury

Both Tim Burford and I went to the Glastonbury Festival, unbeknownst to each other. On returning, we both posted to the CycleStreets photomap some pictures of the many bicycle-related things there.

For those that don’t know, the festival is not just a music festival – a third of the site is a massive green-related area, and there are many stages covering things like cabaret, theatre and so on that are rarely featured on television, plus a massive kids area and all kinds of unexpected happenings and entertainment.

So, by way of a change from our usual ‘on vacation’ features, here is a small selection of bikes at Glastonbury, from myself and Tim!

I suppose it’s a bit much to expect Sheffield Stands on what is normally a farm!.
