Bicycle Blogger and Police Cyclist in Weymouth

Tim's Cycle Shop held an electric bike open day on Saturday. Batribike went along with extra demo bikes to help out. I do enjoy this sort of event, you just don't know who you will meet.

Blogger Richard Anders came to see what was going on and to take some pictures. Richard has taken his love for cycling and for photography and embarked on a 365 day project to chart cycling in 2017. He is posting a cycling related picture and story every day for the whole year. If you would like to follow Richard's 2017 cycling story you can see it on tumblr http://cycle365project.com


Having already met Ralph at the London Bike Show and done a story on Tim earlier in the year it was great to get us all together and Richard kindly took a picture of the team at the event.


Ralph and I had arrived in Weymouth the night before and we all walked into town for an evening meal. It seems that Tim knows everyone in Weymouth and everyone knows Tim. There is a great community feel to his cycle shop. As we walked out on Friday evening me met the local Community policeman on his bicycle, he stopped for a chat and promised to drop by the next day.


The team had a tea urn on the go from the start of the demo day with biscuits and cake to tempt the visitors. The community feel to the day continued with customers new and old dropping in to test ride the bikes and enjoy the hospitality.


At the end of the day we headed off home and couldn't resist the scenic route past Stonehenge. What a great day it had been.
