C5 Alive Events List for 2014
« on: 21, January, 2014 - 10:09:16 »
We have been working on dates for events that C5 Alive will be hosting in 2014 and have created a list of events below for each month, these dates are subject to change and we will let you know about each one as we get closer to each event. The list is not exhaustive and there may well be further dates added as the year goes ahead, but as this is our 1st year we are not exactly sure of our calendar yet.

But please express your interest to us and let us know which ones you would be likely to attend. This will help us to know how busy we are likely to be. We intend to have some stock with us at the shows for you to purchase so you can buy and take away at the show and if there is anything you require and you are coming to a show let us know and we can bring the parts with us.

We will be happy to check over your C5 on the day if you need some help and advice and hope you will enjoy the display that we are working hard on creating for you.

We are really looking forward to hosting some shows this year and are look forward to seeing you at all or some of the events.

We are hosting Build It / Ride it days in Margate this year and look forward to this being the beginning of some enjoyable days, 1st date set is 22nd March.

Wed 1st Jan – New Years Day Gathering – Brooklands Motor MuseumCancelled due to weather

Sat 15th Feb – The London Bike Show – Excel London

The show is on from Thu 13th to Sun 16th Feb – check out
Tickets cost between £13 & £20 – check out on line (its cheaper to book them in advance)

We are attending the above show to hopefully source some new suppliers of tyres etc should be a good interesting day.   (We will not be attending as a show just as visitors)

Sat 22nd Mar – 1st Build it / Ride it day in Margate, Kent

We will spend the morning working on the C5’s checking them over (give them an mot so to speak) then go out for an enjoyable ride along the seafront of Margate – ride map to be confirmed but will depend on how long everyone would like to be out for, if the weathers nice and everyone is up for it there is a lovely ride from Margate to Reculver Towers and back and this can take all afternoon.
We will organise the day to include lunch and a pint

Sun 20th Apr – Gears of change – Discovery Park, Ramsgate Road, Sandwich, Kent
