One of the reasons that we love event photography is because we get to go to some really cool, interesting and unusual events. We were thrilled to be invited to photograph the first ever Great British Bike Off, an alternative, customised bike festival held in Oxford City Centre. The Bike Off promised to be a celebration of creativity, culture and of course cycling… when we arrived the collection of weird, wonderful and wacky bikes that had been entered just blew our minds.
The array of colourful and creative customised bikes was extraordinary… we particularly liked the Pink Angel bike entered by The Cowley Road Condors and the customised rickshaw!
Not only was there an amazing atmosphere at this community event but with an impressive parade around Oxford City Centre and sponsorship from many key Oxfordshire based businesses, it was a really fun day to photograph!
The event raised valuable funds for Cowley based charity The Ark-T Centre. The Ark T Centre uses creativity as a tool for self-empowerment and their projects aim to increase wellbeing and personal resilience for people facing multiple disadvantages.
