Art bike workshops for local kids

Home / single speed / Art bike workshops for local kids

Kids from Kyneton Secondary College and 1st Macedon Scout Group recently took part in workshops to build their own zany bikes.

Matt Benn from Urban Donkey  gave “I heart my bike” workshops to instruct kids in the creation of improbable bikes. Matt is a long time builder of a variety of quirky bikes including penny farthings, clown bikes, extra tall ‘skyscraper’ bikes and  bikes covered in a variety of fabrics.

Look out for the results of these workshops during the SSWC Carni-velo at Hanging Rock on Saturday 22 October. The Scouts are also providing food for the race on Sunday, so make sure you say G’day.
