The Manchester Vulpine Cycling Fete

Vulpine Cycling Fete

Two days after you’ve passed cards, roses, chocolates and whatever else between yourself and your loved one it’s time to get down to Manchester for an event about that other thing we love – cycling. 

I was very kindly asked to do the illustration for the poster advertising the event by Nick and Jools from Vulpine and even more awesome I was asked to be part of the festivities so The Discerning Cyclist will be at the fete discussing style and gear for on and off the bike. I’ll be taking pictures of the event and will be doing a follow up post afterwards so I’m really looking forward to it and I hope to see you there.

Come down to the Bike & Triathlon show the weekend of the 16th & 17th February.

Here’s more info from the Vulpine Blog:

At last! We take the Vulpine Cycling Fete up North. We’re honoured to be taking over a large chunk of the Bike & Triathlon Show at the huge Manchester Central.
