Leeds photo essay: A wheelie unusual hobby for biker
As far as hobbies go, fixing up bikes isn't unusual '“ but how many bikes can turn into a stage, produce flowers or include a musical instrument?
Danny Hewitt, a 39-year-old bike- ability instructor from Bramley, Leeds, has discovered his niche, venturing into the slightly quirkier side of bikes.
His portfolio includes two rickshaws, one which can be used as a stage and one which had a garden on it – he also has a push bike with a harp going through the frame.
He said: “My second rickshaw unfolds into a stage – very useful.
“I had one years ago which I sold to the Farsley Festival because it had a garden on it. I didn’t plan to buy the second one. I was browsing eBay for an apple press one Christmas day and I got distracted by a rickshaw for sale.”
His ‘busking bike’ has been used to raise money for Leeds music charity Cloth Cat.
