When: 9am, Friday 28th May 2010 (or meet us at the Cowherds at 11am).
Where: Dock Gate 4, Southampton.
More Info: On Friday morning, 14 American cyclists (www.pleasantrevolution.net) will be arriving by boat for the start of a tour of musical festivals around Europe and we would like to give them a welcome they will remember! We are welcoming them to Southampton by meeting them at the Docks and taking them on a little tour of the historical sights of the city.
The plan is to meet at Dock Gate 4 after 9am (we don’t know exactly when they will disembark so we may have to hang around for a bit!). The welcome tour will include the World’s oldest bowling green, past God’s House to the Maritime Museum, the Mayflower memorial and then around to the Old Walls. We’ll then cycle up to Tudor House and up to the city centre, to the Bargate. Then into the parks up to the Peace Fountain, Titanic memorial, Cenotaph and then up Bedford Place and over to the Avenue cycle path and up to The Cowherds.
We’ll arrive at The Cowherds pub between 10.30am and 11:00am and with luck they may do a little performance for us there!
Boring legal bit: Please note that people attend at their own risk (so don’t blame us if you get a puncture or a sore bottom!).
The band will also be performing at West Quay on Saturday at 12:00pm and 2:00pm as part of the Dancing in the Streets benefit for the firefighters. Then in the evening they will be at the King Alfred in Northam from 8pm (see below). Please let any cyclists know as we’d love to see a big convoy through the city!
