*3. From VeloCycles: National Ride2Work Day Afterparty -
National Ride2WorkDay has been around for twenty-two years, so being of
that age we reckon it’s high time to celebrate that, as well as your
regular commute. So, we’re having a National Ride2Work Day afterparty!
That’s right, on *Wednesday October 12th starting at 5:30pm*, for three
hours we’ll be playing some bike-related movies, chatting bikes and bike
stuff, sharing some finger food from Green Park Dining
and, for anyone who likes us on Facebook or follows us on Instagram,
you’ll get a free Temple Brewing Bicycle Beer! Note – Year’s free
scheduled servicing equates to three standard services.
Free beer and finger food only whilst stocks last. (We’re getting quite
a bit, but no guarantees!)
