Song Cycle


The creakingly ancient city of York will be the hub of this year’s Tour de France, but it won’t just be the cyclists  getting out of breath. Hundreds of singers will be giving their lungs a work out too, offering the race an almighty musical send off. To mark the occasion, the city’s Chapter House Choir has commissioned popular choral tune smith Alexander L’Estrange to pen a new musical work called Song Cycle: vive la vélorution!, which sings the praises of the bicycle.  The 400-strong choir of singers from across Yorkshire will take Song Cycle  for its first spin on 28 June in York Minster. Inspired by the joy of cycling  and Yorkshire’s beautiful wide open spaces, Song Cycle promises audiences  an exhilarating musical ride across hill and dale. Sound interesting? Point your peepers here.

The postman brought us a treat this morning: volume 12 of WIRED Japan, with a big beautiful chunk of stuff about modern cycling and design, including a page about Boneshaker. We can’t read Japanese, so we’ll have to trust that they’ve said good things about us. It certainly looks good anyway. Top work, Taeko and the team in Tokyo. Check out WIRED Japan here. To bag the latest copy of Boneshaker, slide your slippery fingers thissaway.
