My Cycle Oxford
Submitted by Dan
Sometimes it's hard to think of something huge, like a city.
How do you visualise Oxford?
What goes without say is that lots of things make up the Oxford we know and love, and for me the one thing that it wouldn't exist without is people. This is our city and what a wonderfully diverse thing that is. Recently we hosted a Sesame Street bicycle treasure hunt. The mere mention of which always evokes wonderfully warm gazes into the distance as people recall characters that have become so familiar.
TV shows can support a handful of characters, but cities can support thousands!
When thinking what we wanted to do this Spring with our annual cycle festival we were struck by the need to have a sense of our cycling clty, and a means for other people to appreciate the depth and breadth of one of the most important communities Oxford supp
orts. You don't have to consider yourself a cyclist to enjoy riding a bike in Oxford, and that means if we took a pictures of cyclists in Oxford they wouldn't all be dressed in lycra.
We need you to be youself
We're going to be taking portraits of Oxford Cyclists at all of our events in 2010, but other places too. We'll also ask you what characterises your cycling Oxford, and together we're going to build an archive both on the web and in printed form encompassing a cycling Oxford in 2010.
If you want to be a part of our record of our cycling Oxford catch up with us on a Tuesday at Members Night or at an event and tell us about what characterises your cycling Oxford.
