I've been moving around quite a bit recently, from Lund, to Stockholm and then to London, and where I go, The Bicycle Safari comes with me! But now once again, I announce that bicycle hunting duties are being shifted on to their next somewhat more permanent home!
The Safari is off to Nottingham, England. Now this might not seem the most exciting place to take a Bicycle Safari, but the initial impressions of Robin Hood and a forest are a bit misleading. Nottingham was recently declared the least car dependent city in England, and part of this (as well as plentiful buses and trams) is because of the amount of people cycling around. Coming from Lund, Sweden where 45% of the inhabitants commute every day by bicycle it's hardly going to set the world on fire, but it's a good start.
The second reason why Nottingham is going to be interesting is it's historic role as a bicycle producing town. For nearly 100 years the Raleigh bicycle company produced bikes here, and quite a lot of them are still sitting around the streets! Even when The Safari was in Denmark, this Raleigh popped up with the 'Made in Nottingham' badge on it...
So this is what there is to be found in Nottingham by the bucket load. It should be good!
