Buy, Barter or Beautify your Bike

Cork City Council, in association with Trendy Travel have organised a bike flea market
At this unusual event, which isn't simply a bike flea market any rusty old bicycle can be either sold, traded in or made into a piece of art. Sculptor, permaculture expert and bicycle wizard Rob Ireson will host a workshop on harnessing bike power and show the public how easy it is to convert your old bike into an amplified MP3 Player. In a bike workshop everybody can learn to repair a bike and for more serious cases you can bring your bike to a temporary bike hospital.
