2017 Christmas Lights and Dinner at Enzo’s Cucina

Our annual 2017 Christmas Lights Dinner Ride is on again on the 8th of December 2017.

There is no better way to experience the fantastic light displays that Chipping Norton, Georges Fair and Wattle Grove have to offer than by joining Bike Liverpool for a night that is enjoyed by all those that attend year after year.

If you have the time (and it’s not a requirement) embrace the spirit of Christmas by decking your bike out with some form of lighting or decoration, our suggestions from what has been done over the years is below.

  1. Tinsel.
  2. Christmas Lights.
  3. EL Wire
  4. RGB Light Strips.
  5. Glow Sticks
  6. Anything else which glows in the dark!

 

 

NOTE: It’s mandatory that you have a charged set of functional front and rear bicycle lights.

But! It wouldn’t be a dinner ride if there was no grub… right? So, to that end we are going heading to Enzo’s Cucina at Chipping Norton for some delicious Italian, and if that isn’t your style they do wonderful wood fired pizzas!

Convinced and would like to join us? Please RSVP by the Tuesday the 5th of December by contacting Maree on (02) 9602 5293 or 0419 203 379.

We look forward to seeing you on the bike and remember everyone is welcome to come along including families.
