The Printing Bike on the Road

Print bike the rooms

It’s been a little while now since I rode the printing bike from Bristol to Mainz with Robin Mather (who designed and made the brilliant bicycle). On that 800 mile journey we printed postcards during overnight stops posting them to people who had supported the project on Kickstarter.

Since then the printing bike has had good use, riding to schools and printing on open days, at festivals: Port Eliot, The Good Life, fforest Gather and at FolkEast. We’ve also printed within Bristol printing postcards or beermats around the city. I have another longer journey planned this year. The bike was made to carry an Adana 8×5 printing press, but also to journey long distances, and I feel it has another epic adventure in it.
