Essentially I’m cycling from Petersfield to Reading.
“That’s not very far!” I hear you cry, and you’d be right, but I’m going via gigs in Southampton, Bristol, Oxford, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Cambridge, London, and Brighton.
Its approx 720 miles in ten days by pushbike. Although I hope there’ll not be too much pushing involved.
Or rain for that matter, although given that I’m starting on the 23rd of Feb, the chance of incliment weather is probably high.
Waterproofs not optional.
I’ll be performing some of my own brand of poetry at each gig, alongside other local poets and hopefully some headliners or two.
The full itinerary is as follows, more details on each of the gig pages.
