Just a reminder that on the 6th of June there will be a classic and interesting Cycle Meet at Daventry Northamtonshire to celebrate the Grand Depart of the Women's Tour the next day. Cycle owners are invited to attend with their machines between 5pm and 9 pm. No need to book, just turn up to the High Street Daventry (all Daventry car parks are free if you need to transport a cycle). We meet outside the Daventry Town Council Gazebo on the High Street. There will be all sorts of other stalls and stands there as well. We are hoping the Daventry Museum Transport Exhibition will be open on the night complete with a child’s ordinary to look at. Dress the part if you want to but it's not required. What is interesting? Well if you think you can explain why then that's enough. I will have my 60’s Viking Mileater, the Airnimal, the Big Yeti Trike and the boring racing trike. We don't have a vintage bike, a tandem, a track bike, a Lotus……… what will you bring? My Airnimal will be there, can we have a few?
Please confirm that this is Tuesday June 6th. I may be able to bring Snowy the Rhino. I'm not able to fit my Grandads 1948 Raleigh in my car. (5 days ago)
My Joey has to visit a posh office in London on Weds & Thurs and will be folded up and stored in the posh cloakroom. To celebrate, it got it's first full clean in about 18 months. Not looking bad for a bike that's done well over 20k miles. She's going to get a new fork soon which will drop the front end by about 3cm, hence the BB will drop by about 1.5cm and the seat will moved forwards a little: all good news!

Does the change of fork (lowering the front end) affect the steering/handling? (1 year ago)Ian Clifford:
It reduces the trail so it must do. 1 (1 year ago)Jonathan Lunt:
At the moment the front end is way higher than a normal Airnimal because of the 26" wheels and the fork. The new fork should make it feel a bit more natural, but i have ridden something like 8000 miles since i changed it all over and i've frown used to it. 1 (1 year ago)Kris Samyui-Adams:
What diameter Thomson seatpost did you go for? (1 week ago)Jonathan Lunt:
Sorry, don't remember. Just look at the old 'top section' post and see what it's stamped with. 1 (1 week ago)

Woman's Tour - Fit Fest - 6th June - 1700 to 2000 - Old, Classic, Vintage and interesting cycles.
To celebrate the 2017 Women's Tour Grand Depart Daventry Fit Fest is being held on the High Street Daventry. The Daventry Town Council and Museum will be hosting Cycle meet for interesting and old cycles. So if you have a vintage cycle, a classic from later in 20th century, or something modern but interesting (trikes, tandems, tandem trikes, folders, recumbents) bring them along and join us. We are not precious about what you bring as long as it's interesting. The museum's Transport Exhibition has a penny farthing on display as well. If you can dress the part even better! No need to book just turn up. There are no organised rides but plenty of cycle ways you can use if you want to stretch your legs. If you have any questions just send me a personal message or comment if you see this on Facebook. My Chameleon will be there as interesting.

Some of you will remember back in 2010 when we celebrated Airnimal's 10th Anniversary. Our sister company, Circe, is now reaching that milestone, so we thought it time for another celebration!
Here's the preliminary information. Hope some of you will be able to make it.
On the weekend of August 12 and 13th, we're running an event in conjunction with our sister company, Airnimal, to celebrate Circe Cycles' 10th Anniversary.
We'll be hosting it in meadows in the pretty village of Dullingham just outside Cambridge. Camping will be available on site, and participants can either stay for the weekend or drop in at any stage. Alternatively, accommodation is available in nearby Newmarket and Cambridge.
Full details to be published soon, but we're planning to have bikes on show and for test riding, do some family friendly rides in the area, and have food and entertainment. What's not to like!
Numbers for staying the whole w'end will be limited on a first come, first served basis, so early booking is advisable.
