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.'
