Hereford Pedalhaus Revisited

Date: 3 October 2015 Time: 9.00 - 15.00
Location: Hereford Cost: Free. Booking essential

Following on from the successful inaugural event last year, this is the second pedalhaus in Herefordshire. The idea is to look at a few projects, past and present in Herefordshire.

 

  • Meet at 9:00 at Hereford Cathedral.
  • Ride to a Bauhaus-inspired passivhaus dwelling, the Fish Factory, currently under construction in central Hereford, which is also participating in the UK Passivhaus Open Days 13 - 15 November.
  • Cycle to a low-energy project that was completed a few years ago in Hereford. Drinks & cake will be provided.
  • The final project to visit will be HARC (Hereford Archive facility) in Rotherwas, UK's first Passivhaus archive project designed by Architype, with Nick Grant and Alan Clarke as consultants. It will be a great opportunity to see the finished building and find out how it's performing. Finger food and drinks will be available before we'll be given a tour of the building at 1pm.
  • The day will finish with a quick fire Pecha Kucha style presentation of interesting projects. [If you are attending the event and would like to share/ show their own project(s) to email 3 slides per project (jpeg or PDF format) to george.mikurcik@architype.co.uk. Speakers will have one minute per slide to keep the pace up.]

 

The bike journey will cover about 6 miles, by public highway and cycle routes but will be suitable for all sorts of cycles and abilities...the route will be at a gentle pace and no one will get left behind.

You need to bring: 

 

  • a bike (in good working order)
  • suitable all weather clothing
  • spare inner tube and pump.

 

 

The ride is on public roads and cycle tracks, participants must exercise sound, mature judgment being responsible for their own and others’ safety. It is your responsibility to carry out manoeuvres safely and to adhere to the rules of the road. the ride will include sections of rural A roads, we recomend that you wear a helmet.
