Hello and welcome to Alex's Blog,
Today you are being treated to a guest blog from Sam at our Leicester store who organised the J&S Bike Meet at Stoney Cove in Leicester....
Well on April 10th 2019 J&S Accessories Leicester had their first bike night held at Stoney Cove in Stoney Stanton.
The day started for staff at about 2pm turning up to the venue to help suppliers set up and have a look round Nemo's Bar and have something to eat.
Tran-Am, Nevis and Forcefield very kindly turned up to
showcase 2019 product and by 6pm bikers started to turn up and settle in for a
good evening with hot drinks, food, cold drinks and plenty of bikes to look at.
The car park very quickly started to fill up by 7pm and was fully underway with everything from sports bikes, cruisers, customs, café racers, classics, trikes and tourers.
Staff were walking about taking names and numbers for some
prizes that were up for grabs with prizes like £100 for just turning up on a
bike which was drawn at random, £25 for the highest mileage and £50 for bike of
the night which was chosen and agreed by staff.
Christian our brand manager for Frank Thomas and BKS turned up with Billy McConnell and Joe Collier who are two racers as a company we support, who were there doing signings and photos.
With about 268 bikes that attended everyone was enjoying
themselves and walking around all the bikes and enjoying the hospitality
extended by Nemo's Bar.
By 8.30pm people had started to leave as the sun was setting
and what a noise it was with all the bikes starting up and a thundering sound
of all different exhaust systems echoing through the cove as people were
Everyone was very respectful arriving and leaving and by
9.20pm the carpark was empty.
Great night had by all and massive thankyou to Ed from Tran-Am, Gareth and Aaron from Nevis and the guys from Forcefield and a big thankyou also to Christian for coming down and Joe Collier and Billy McConnell but most importantly thank you to the Management and the staff at Nemo's Bar for looking after us on the night.
With a bit of luck, the Management at Nemo's Bar are very happy and going forward the monthly J&S Accessories Bike Night will continue to be at Stoney Cove.
What a night and here is to more to come……WATCH THIS
As you can see from the photos in the gallery the site that the guys at Leicester managed to find is amazing! Gorgeous views and the fact that there is a bar onsite didn't harm the bike meet either! If you are interested in attending the next Leicester Bike Meet, then you can find more details on the Facebook event group here.
If you're not near to our Leicester store, but are close to any of the other 30 stores we have nationwide, then keep your eyes peeled on future blogs for more details coming up of other bike nights involving other J&S locations!
Until next time, stay safe,
