Join in a journey through the streets of Leeds and take part in a groundbreaking mapping project in July 2013.
Rider Spoke invites cyclists to follow instructions from a handheld computer & leave their thoughts at specific locations across the city for others to discover.
Triggered by GPS, Rider Spoke asks questions that provoke memories and confessions, leaving a trail of recorded answers for the next rider to create a new interactive map of Leeds.
Four times BAFTA nominated Blast Theory are world renowned as pioneers of immersive theatre, game play and mobile technology.
They are seeking cyclists to take part in this free event; you will need to book a place to reserve a bike and computer. You can bring your own bike but booking is still essential.
Gameplay/cycle approx 75mins.
Rider Spoke is suitable for people age 16 years and over – please note that everybody who is less than 5.2 feet (160 cm) high needs to bring own bike along to the event.
East Street Arts has invited Blast Theory to present Rider Spoke as part of Juliana’s Bike a programme of art celebrating cycling during July & August 2013
