To mark the arrival of the UCI Road World Championships in Yorkshire, collaborative exhibition Hup Hup Hup will feature cycling flags created by nine designer cycling fans around the world. Paul Smith, a renowned cycling aficionado and memorabilia collector, is among the list of flag makers, along with Anthony Burrill, Build’s Michael C. Place, David Millar from CHPT3, Taylor Phinney from Manifest Butter, BBUC, Death Spray Custom and James Ockelford.

The project has been put together by Conductor (which has also created a flag), Hypergram and North Brewing Co, paying homage to the passion of cycling fans, who spend hours crafting homemade flags to cheer on their heroes.

Anthony Burrill says of his design: “When I’m riding my bike and I see this written on the road it spurs me on, to carry on, either to my destination or back home. I like the simplicity and how the phrase can be applied to life outside cycling. We should always push ahead and not be held back.”

Hup Hup Hup is open now at North Bar, Harrogate, Yorkshire until 29 September 2019. Prints of the flag designs are also available to buy online, with profits going to The Dave Rayner Fund, a charity supporting young British cyclists.
