BoB Beginner 2023 London to Southened
The brothers who joined this years beginner series were the most committed weve had. From a total of 25 brothers we collectively had 10 absences across six weeks. The brothers were keen to improve and it quickly became apparent that the spirit of this group was special.
Culminating the event with a trip to Southend was a fitting end to a great series.
We must give a huge thank you to the ride leaders who took time out from the Sunday mornings to give back to the community. Irfan, Robbie, Arif Bhai, Junaid, Muhammad Shakiel, Adrian, Maz, Glenn were around almost every week. We had reliable leaders, great weather which made this series one of the best.
The graduation ride is a day of celebration. 120 brothers attended to partake on this achievement. Below are some of the pictures of the event
