START: 11:00am Water Tower, Durdham Down
DESCRIPTION: A fancy dress ride into the city centre and back to promote the Bristol Botanical Gardens Festival of Bees & Pollination (which takes place the following weekend). Bee suits will be specially made for you, so to be sure of getting one you’ll need to register with Sue Carter 0117 924 7622 by Thu 29Aug at the latest. You’ll need good cycle skills whilst in costume (so not suitable for beginners) and you’ll need a pannier rack to support the costume. Bikes with trailers needed to carry small beehives.
FOOD STOPS: Picnic afterwards on the Downs
LENGTH: 10 miles
EST FINISH: 1pm
SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS? No
