Cycle-friendly shopping and Biking Vikings

Hi Frockers
Eeek, with just 5 weeks until Christmas, shopping and the Santa Parade are the two unnegotiables in my world! So let me introduce you to Jeanette and Adele, who have just started an online urban bicycle and bicycle accessory business, Via Cycles, based here in Christchurch. Check out their website and Facebook pages for cycle styled pressies at:

And once again we have an invitation to join the Biking Vikings in the 2014 Christchurch Santa Parade. Keep Sunday afternoon 7th December free for a bit of a knees up and down and bit of all round fun.
By popular demand the theme is the same as last year – Vikings for men with wenches, ladies and angels for the dames. Viking King Nigel the Horrible has a few spare Viking helmets for those who don’t have their own. There is a rumour that jousting is on the programme, just to be completely historically inaccurate.
If you’d prefer to come in normal dress, then decorating your bike is mandatory! We have a supply of tinsel, ribbons and what-not to help. Alternatively come with your unusual bike. Well trained dogs sitting in a front basket are always popular. The best dressed person and/or bike gets a prize. Amongst the prominent people joining us this year are The All Righties!
We intend to have an after-match function, details yet to be finalised and will depend on good weather.
What to do/when to go: Sunday 7 Dec: assemble on Wharenui Road about 1:30pm for 2:00pm start (position will be announced as soon as we know). To register interest contact ViKing Nigel Rushton
