Presenting... Bikeless Speed Dating

Want to meet a lovely someone?

Madame Melski is here to help, with her charming version of speed dating.

Driven indoors by the unrelentingly inclement weather, she will bring together some of Bristol's most delightful singles for an intimate evening of relaxed speed dating, laughter, cake and soft lighting. 

When and where? 7.30pm on St Valentine's Day at a secret central Bristol location
How to sign up? Advance booking is essential - book now!
How much? £7 (this might include a few little treats...)
Age range guide: Most people will be in the 30-45 age group but all are welcome.

Let's not get nervous - it's all happy and lovely here and we all look gorgeous. 

Please note this is an indoor dating event, and not Cycle Speed Dating! While bicyclists are always especially encouraged (along with vegetarians, creatives, bakers, gardeners and all round lovelies), their cycles will only be required for subsequent wondrous dates like this:

Springing to life

So the winter was hard. I wouldn't know, as I was busy adventuring in the Americas. In fact, here's a pic of my sundrenched December wine tasting cycle tour in Mendoza. But I feel for you, shivering, pasty, longing for the sunshine to return and brighten your days. 

It won't be long now, I promise. The earth has cast off its wintry cloak and slowly but surely the sun gets stronger and the 2013 Bristol Cycle Festival planning gets underway. To whet your appetite, we've got a wonky and wonderful warm up party for you!

A colourful conceptual masterstroke, the Ru-bikes Cube party starts at 8pm on Saturday 11th May at the Cube. A joint fundraiser for Bristol Cycle Festival and the Cube, both of whom are adept at DIY brilliance and having a good time. It's sure to be a marriage made in party heaven. 

Dress bright, swap clothes, quiz hard, shake your booty and, who knows, maybe find romance on the dancefloor. If not, Madame Melski will soon return with more bicycle speed dating (and something of a tan).

Well, what a summer! Beautiful cycling days were few and far between but all the sweeter for their scarcity. And it wasn't just the Olympics getting people's hearts racing... Romance blossomed for some lucky cycle speed daters - you know who you are!

If you didn't find love this time, keep on pedalling. You never know when your eyes will meet on the cycle path, or your fingers brush each other's when you're sharing a bike rack. Bristol's cyclists are beautiful and you're one of them - so remember to smile, you never know who's going to smile back.

Under construction...

Exciting times! The summer will soon be upon us and that means not only a summer of cycling but hopefully also a summer of love. Like the sixties but on bicycles. Maybe.
