Book your ride

Explore the town recording stories about your life and listening to other people’s in a unique, immersive bike ride.

Set off in search of the perfect place to hide a secret. Ride on and the voices of strangers will draw you to new and unknown places.

“A gloriously enlivening piece of theatre …the show’s greatest gift is that it manages to embrace the remorseless rush of the City while insisting on the individual’s ability to pierce it with quiet reflection.” -Metro

“We are truly fortunate in this century, in the wired and anonymous city, to have rediscovered Aboriginal notions of songlines and Dreamtime, to explore with the aid of mobile technology a new form of strangely low-tech play. Rider Spoke was magical.” – Icon

Rider Spoke invites you on a ride guided by a narrator and a delicate soundtrack. With a smartphone attached to your handlebars, discover heartfelt stories told by people around the world. Take time to reflect on the people and moments in your life that mean the most while you ride. Then decide whether to leave behind a story of your own.
