Cargo Bike Love x


I love the 8freight cargo bike SO bloody much! I’ve been helping set up a new Letterpress Workshop in Bristol and had to haul a whole bunch of building materials across the city last week and so borrowed one from The Bristol Bike Project. More info about these wonderful wheelers here! – Jimmy eLL

The Bristol Comic and Zine Fair


The Bristol Comic and Zine Fair returns for a third year to celebrate the world of DIY and independent publishing. The fair brings together artists, writers, publishers and booksellers from across Bristol and further afield for a one-day market. There’ll be self-published zines, homemade comics, handmade books, alternative publications and all things in-between on offer and we’ll have a stall there too, laden with Boneshaker goodies. Come and say hello…

Saturday October 5th, 12-6pm at The Station, BS1 2AG – free entry.

We loved the story so much, we asked the Bomberdrome boys to come down to this year’s Bristol Cycle Festival where they rocked the show.  Now a fine looking film’s been made about the Bomberdrome project.
