Christmas social tonight!

Our meeting is tonight and it’s our Christmas social – no agenda or formal meeting, just a chance to chat with other cyclists while sipping mulled cider, a soft drink or a cup of tea. If you’re interested in what we do and want to find out a bit more this is the perfect opportunity.

All cyclists are welcome. You don’t have to be a member of LCC, although I should mention we think they’re great!

Tonight, Tuesday the 22nd of December – come any time between 8pm to 9:30pm in the Hornbeam Centre, 458 Hoe Street, E17 9AH.
