Bike Gear in Lidl !

09_42533_s Yes, It’s arrived.  From next Monday Lidl are selling bike gear.

I can recomend their Motorcycle Socks, pictured here. (No, not socks for your motorcycle!)  I’ve tried them and they are brill….but in the Winter I did have to wear boots as well.

They are selling flip front and open face helmets, intercoms, bike covers, biker jackets, locks etc etc.  I09_09303_st’s well worth a look for some good quality, low cost kit, and some Milk, Biscuits and Crisps as well.

Also a reminder about the ride out this weekend.  See the previous posts for meeting times and place.

And just before I go to pitch my tent outside my local Lidl, there is just 1 place left for the French War Graves trip in April. (See the previous post)  Please let me know if you are interested.

I’ve had a few people who want to go but can’t make the April dates so if this trip is successful I will be looking to run another later in the year.

See you Sunday…….Come on, you know you want to…..
