The Harey Bikers


RHS Harlow Carr - Anyone with a finger on the pulse of popular British culture will appreciate this. It is, of course, a tribute to the recent Tour de France; the first day's stage finished in Harrogate. The title of the sculpture also references a popular TV programme featuring 'two northern blokes with a passion for food, cooking and motorbikes'- The Hairy Bikers.  There were several willow sculptures around the RHS Garden. I really liked them.

  2. I saw some of it on our sports news over here. I was trying to see if I recognized any of the lanes, but they moved too fast. Nice to see people coming out to cheer them on in the more rural areas.
