The Bike Show returns to Essex and Martin Newell, writer, poet, musician and horticultural assassin, for another helping of Spoke N Word. This year’s programme features a new route from Wivenhoe to Bentley Green, reported to be the largest village green in England. We cross fields, pass through woodland and finish on a series of quiet country lanes. Rain threatens but Martin is equipped with a waterproof poetry kit.
In the studio is Andy Cox, with the latest developments on the UK premier of the Symphony for Singing Bicycles, set for Saturday 7 July. Got a dynamo? Want to take part? We need up to 24 riders, so please get in touch via bikeshow(at)gmail(dot)com.
Spoke N Word runs until 1 July, every Saturday and Sunday, with cycle rides on Sun 27 May, Sat 2 June, Sun 3 June, Sun 17 June, Sun 1 July. Tickets from Â£7 bookable at the Colchester Arts Centre on 01206 500 900.
