Last Friday at the Bristol store saw the start of A Beautiful Machine, the festival of talks, rides and art celebrating all things bike.

The opening evening kicked off with Tim March delivering a brilliant no-visuals talk about his life on a bike (apart from his famous RIDER tattoo "so that in a thousand years when they find me is a peat bog somewhere, they know just what I did").

Followed by Amy Fleuriot from Cyclodelic who design and make practical and beautiful riding clothes for women, supported by some of Britain's top women riders.

If Friday night is anything to go by, then both events will be excellent and not to be missed (tickets are £5 - all proceeds go to Save the Children). Might still be a bit of beer and rum around to make the evenings even better.

The illustration show continues all week upstairs at the Bristol shop (62 Queens Road), all the art on show is being auctioned instore, all money goes to Save the Children. You can also see the bike built by the Bristol Bike Project which will also be auctioned to raise money for the project.

We want your pictures of your very own beautiful machines.

This is a picture of Laurie's new bike. It is her dream bike that she got for her birthday, so it is no longer her dream.

A Beautiful Machine exhibition is on for 2 weeks above the howies Bristol store starting 26th March. We want to fill one of our blank exhibition walls with pictures of your dream bike or the bike you actually own that has been on many adventures with you.

Send us a pic and we will pin it up on the wall, we want to document all those well loved beautiful machines out there, so do share yours with us and all those who attend the exhibition. The finished wall of bicycle wonderment will be blogged too.

Snail mail to howies, 62 Queens Road, Bristol, BS8 1RE.

Any questions, give us a bell on 01179298928

We can't print off emailed images so please snail mail them to us. You have 2 weeks, so don't panic!

It was such a lovely weekend 'weatherwise'

There wasn't a cloud in the sky over Cardigan yesterday, and although it was still pretty cold it finally feels as if we're starting to shake off the last bits of winter and can look forward to Spring.

What better way to sum up springtime than snowdrops - I took this yesterday afternoon while on a walk through Cwm Degwel. lovely stuff! Viva la primavera!
