Visit Banks Mill Open Studios and 5 Parks Ride – Derby

Lots of things happening this weekend in Derby. Banks Mill (which I’m an associate member of) is having their twice annual Open Studios Event. It’s a really good opportunity to go and see the creative  businesses that operate out of the Mill – and purchase some of their work.

My presence at this event is a bit smaller than usual, due to heavy workload on the new cycling guidebook, and a cycling photography commission on Sunday, but my greetings cards will be there (mostly Derbyshire images), and are on special offer – £1.75 each instead of the normal £2.25. So go and grab a bargain or few!!

Also this weekend is Cycling Derby’s Big Day Out – a cycling festival for all in Derby. It sounds to be a great day out and with the help of the CTC, they’re organising a ride round the 5parks route in aid of Macmillan Cancer. This is a fun, gentle and easy way to discover some of the great cycling that Derby has to offer. I’ll be riding the route as one of the cycling marshalls – so look forward to seeing you there!
