Departing from Queen’s Square, Bristol

CycleOut leads a guided bicycle tour of  the life of John Addington Symonds. Born in Clifton in 1840, Symonds was an early advocate for the legitimacy of same-sex love, and the writer of several pioneering works.  The cycle tour will cover about 10 miles at a relaxed pace, stopping at significant locations from Symonds’ childhood and personal life.

The tour departs from the King William statue at centre of Queen’s Square, Bristol (or outside Graze bar on corner if access to square restricted.)  The event is free, but donations to OutStories Bristol project gratefully received.

Accessibility: This is a two-hour event involving stop-start cycling at a relaxed pace to suit the group.  The ride involves some hills.

Booking: You can book a place online (or just let us know you’re coming) at Eventbrite.

This event is one in a series for LGBT History Month in Bristol, February 2013. View our upcoming events and Eventbrite page, or visit LGBT Bristol for details of other LGBT History Month activities.
