What happen to Bike Bloc?

On my first morning in Copenhagen, way back (it seems so long ago now) on the 8th December, with my new found couch surfing friends, we went to find the Bolsjefabrikken (wow, Danish words are hard!) otherwise known as the Candy Factory.
Here a group of activists from Bristol, UK were organising the Bike Bloc.
