One of the key partners in East Hampshire Cycling for All is the Forestry Commission, and we’re joining together for an exciting new project at Alice Holt Forest.
If you love to ride bikes, you love learning new skills, and you believe in sourcing local materials, then we have a day in the forest that may interest you.
Participants will spend the first part of their day with an expert forester, identifying an ideal tree and felling it themselves. In the afternoon, with the help of a skilled carpenter, I’ll be showing everyone how to build a functional bike from their recently harvested tree.
Frame, handlebars and other key components will be manufactered from the felled timber. Where available, tyres will be made from other vegetation found in the forest.
Participants are requested to bring their own bell and reflectors to be fitted to their new cycle.
If you’d like to be part of this exciting day, email me at email@example.com or call me on 07717 721511.
