A lot of monkey business

Tonight’s CycleOut Bristol bike ride, led by Chris, took us on a ‘Gorilla hunt’. On our bikes we were able to see about 25 of the 80+ painted gorilla statues that have been placed around Bristol to celebrate Bristol Zoo’s 175th anniversary. Each has been decorated by a different artist and they are proving to be quite this summer’s tourist attraction – definitely worth a visit. Sadly I couldn’t persuade Mike to join tonight’s ride. I think he’d have enjoyed it, (especially if he’d known we’d be cycling past Waitrose in Westbury Park!). Finishing off with tea at the Tobacco Factory where there is an additional mini gorilla in the bar, courtesy of Ashton Gate Primary School.
