London Bikers Christmas Party


#1

Once again the time has come to organise the next London Bikers Christmas Party. What’s that I hear you say, it’s only September?!! Well as you know I like to get in there first and beat the Xmas rush :wink:
To be fair, I hadn’t even given it a thought this year until I was contacted by the Bike Shed to get a booking in early but it has spurred me on to get everyone together again. How crazy is it I haven’t seen any of you since last year??
We’ve all had our own commitments with some of us still holding the community together in messaging and meet ups. I’m sorry to say I have been a bit slack on this front with the biking on hold for us at the moment. For those slightly interested I’ll be back in time for spring next year :wink:
But what I’ve always loved about our biking community is we always come together and whilst we don’t see each other half as much as we used to, it’s like time has not even gone by when we finally do. With this in mind I’m keen to get the gang back together for a tasty meal and catch up at our favourite biking establishment, The Bike Shed.
Without further ado here are the finer details….

£36.95 + 12.5% service charge to sit down and eat.
