Slowcoast Returns to Bristol!

  • Posted by howies
  • 2 October 2009

slowcoast-header                                Tomorrow afternoon, our good friend Nick Hand will cycle back into Bristol. He will complete an epic 5000 mile trip around the Uk coastline. He's cycled at least 50 miles a day for 100 days, made over 60 soundslide films and lost a stone in weight (despite eating loads and loads of cakes.)

To celebrate the return of a true legend, "a few" people will be meeting up with Nick at Clevedon Pier tomorrow afternoon and riding the final 15 miles back to Bristol. Anyone who wants to join us is most welcome, it will be a memorable ride. 

Alternatively, if you'd like to cheer Nick home with us, there will be a crowd gathered outside the howies shop on Queens Road. We will have tea and cakes for everyone who come's along.

So here's the plan:

For riders-- Meet at Clevedon Pier at 3pm to set off at 3.30pm. (If you'd like to join Paddy and Will who are cycling to Clevedon from the shop, be at howies and ready to go at 1.30pm) 

For the welcome party-- Meet at howies Queens Road from 4.15 (we estimate the ride will take about an hour)

Tea and cake for everyone from 4.30pm- 6 ish when the shop will close. 

See you tomorrow!                                               You can donate to Parkinsons Disease Society here through Nick's Site

PS// if you can't make it tomorrow, make sure you don't miss Nick's Wee Do Lecture, currently pencilled in for Thursday 22nd October.

Antonin Kratochvil

There's a great interview with the photographer up on the "outside" website.

THE BOY HOLDS HIS BLACKENED PALM TOWARD THE CAMERA. Soot rings his eyes. Behind him, two plumes of factory smoke billow into the choked sky. Soon it will begin to rain.

"The raindrops were black," says Antonin Kratochvil, who took the photograph.

It's a June morning in Manhattan, and a barefoot Kratochvil, 62, is lounging on a white couch in the Tenth Avenue loft he shares with his fourth wife, Gabriela, and two of his three sons. This is an uncommon moment of repose for a man who's so tightly coiled and peripatetic that he's known as "the Bouncing Czech." Family chaos swirls all around him, the floor a minefield of dump trucks belonging to his 19-month-old son, Gavyn. Gabriela, a willowy blonde 20 years younger than her husband, is simultaneously sautéing chicken at the stove, captioning photographs at her desk, and preparing to wake their teenage son, Wayne.

It's my last day with James McKnight and his crew out in france and we've spend the last few days doing some serious rides. Pushing bikes up over 1000 vertical meters of Alp, camping out in a mountain hut to escape a storm, then riding down 2000m of virgin singletrack in the rain. Im stiff today.
