Club Bike Jumble Sale

After club on 22nd September we are having a club bike jumble sale. It is near the end of the season and we are sure plenty of people have grown out of bikes, bits or clothes so this is a good opportunity to sell what you do not need anymore and look for other stuff to replace!

Please bring your bits along priced up in advance and see what you can sell. We will run this near the signing on tables, so if the summer weather returns we can keep dry.

All club members are welcome, as this is not just for the children. Please remember that this is for cycling related items only.
