Cycle Jumble Sale @ Gravesend Cyclopark, 8th Feb
Fancy picking up some new(ish) cycling kit but want to avoid the distraction of pedestrians and the depression of cookie-cutter urban shopping centers? A utopia that a cyclist can normally only dream of.
Dreams, unlike wage increases and hair regain schemes, do come true! On the 8th of Feb, the Cyclopark in Gravesend is hosting a cycling jumble sale where you will be able to pick up all those slightly-too-small/big Christmas presents and kit of yester-season. If you have some kit of your own you would like to move on, they are also offering the option of hosting your own table for a reasonable £15 per table (tables are limited so contact the organsiers quickly). The day starts at 0830 to get set up, 0930 to start, and finishes at 1300. There is parking and a cafe there to get mid-day cake so you don't miss out. More details are on the attached flyer.
If you'd like to ask some questions of the organisers, you can call 07711 396490 or mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The trip is a healthy 65 or so miles via the M25. If you're heading down, stick a post up on the forum if you don't mind taking someone alone with you.
