As part of the National Cycling Championships held in Monmouthshire, Abergavenny Library staff along with the Friends of the Abergavenny Library Service staffed a stall at the Bike Bash in Bailey Park. Pride of place on their display were the bikes covered in knitting, proudly produced by several of our regular library customers. The smoothie bike, which used pedal power to run a blender using fruit donated by Tesco, was also a big hit. While trying their luck with the bike our visitors were able to find out about the many services which libraries offer, including the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service and, of course, the Mythical Maze Summer Reading challenge.
The mayor of Abergavenny proved a very enthusiastic pedaller!
