Bike Story

Everyone has a bike story – what’s yours?

Everyone has a bike story – what’s yours?

Bike Story was one of the major commissions of the 2014 Yorkshire Festival. Written by Mike Kenny and inspired by stories from the public, the production celebrated our love affair with the bicycle and toured to 13 outdoor locations across Yorkshire – parks, town squares, fields and festival sites – ahead of the Grand Depart of the Tour de France.

“We have heard about many amazing things – mercy dashes, tandem love affairs, cycling in war zones, accidents and incredible feats of endurance. Some people use their bike for work. Some people cycle out love for the environment, some people cycle for thrills and some people cycle because it’s the only means of transport they have. Whatever your reason and whatever your story, share your story with others.”
