Biking group The Norfolk/Suffolk Retro Riderz (NSRR), took part in a Christmas Lights cruise around Norwich earlier this week.
The group - who celebrate a love of cycling and bikes from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s and support each others restoration projects - organise a variety of events throughout the year culminating in their Christmas Lights Cruise.
Riders decorate their bikes, don Christmas attire and take a leisurely cycle around Norwich among the city’s festive lights.
Watton-local Justin Smith, one of the organisers of the event, said “Last year was our first ‘Xmas Lights Cruise’ and it was met with much joy by the shoppers who were in the city. We decided to do it again this year and on Wednesday night 35 riders came and decorated bikes to take to Norwich city centre.”
Members as young as seven and as old as 70 attended, showing just how inclusive the activity can be.
The NSRR take part in many biking events around the country, as well as organising their own regular meet ups. Earlier this month some of their members also attended the Santa Cruise in London in aid of the Evaline Children’s Heart Organisation (ECHO), along with 500 other riders from around the nation.
