Although the anniversary would have been in Feb 2020, COVID restrictions unfortunately prevented any type of celebration.

The event will take place at Norris Bank Reserve on Sun 23 May at approx. 10 AM in the form of both a family ride & also BBQ with soft drinks and food being provided.

We are hoping you are able to join us for the event. Please bring your family & your bikes.
