I need to say a big thank you to these people, they helped make The Pedal Powered Press a real thing.
The guys from Click have supported the project from the start, we talked through the concept and they went on to perfect the design. I never expected to have CAD drawings and laser cut steel, but this is what they do, and they do it very well. They're also pretty achomplished cyclists.
Ashleigh at Dust has been brilliant, She's so passionate about letterpress and Stephenson Blake type. I don't think there's anyone who would have been more perfect to work with on the poster design.
Andy at Giant Sheffield helped out massively, he did me a ridiculously good deal the Defy 2 bike that powers the press and the turbo trainer it sits in. Plus he very kindly loaned his big blue gazebo for the opening weekend.
Who by offering me a commission for the Tour de France Cultural Festival made the whole thing possible. Rebecca has been a great help on the end of the emails.
For including The Pedal Powered Printing Press as one of festival events welcoming the Grand Départ of the Tour de France to Yorkshire.
