The club has enjoyed a very successful 2016 year.
The year end also saw the Clubs 6th Xmas function (moved to evening from lunchtime) and charity auction, in December, attended by 80 people, some of who had flown in from overseas for the occasion.The auction raised 554 Euros for our designated Alzheimer's Charity. The club also participated in the annual Santa Toy Run in December, in Alicante.
This year’s events also included monthly ride/outs to various bike shows, museums, and other places of interest, as well as very popular monthly breakfast meetings. We also made visits to the Torrevieja Alzheimer’s Association, whom we support, to hand over funds raised during the year.
