Cycle Runway – Tue Sept 11th

If you’re missing a little bit of style in your daily ride, then Cycle Runway is for you! As part of its 2012 Eco-Week, the University of Canterbury is holding a “Cycle Runway” evening, on Tuesday 11th September.

Cycle Runway is a fashion show focussing on cycling, with not a stitch of lycra in sight. It will showcase comfortable and safe commuter bikes, local designers and recycled fashion (proving that just a few dollars can transform you into a stylish cyclist).

Cycle Runway follows on the heels of many other notable cycle fashion events around the country that have aimed to put a touch of everyday class into how we ride. Leading the charge have been the magnificent Frocks on Bikes groups around NZ.

Doors open at 6.30pm at the UC Events Centre (Ilam Rd , opp. Homestead Lane), with the show starting at 7pm. Tickets cost $15, which gets you a complimentary drink and nibbles as well. Sign up today!
