MCC stall great success

We ran a stall in Princes Park on Sunday 7th September with great success, during the Sky Ride and before the official start of the Tour of Britain 2014, with lots of people on bikes diverting into the park. Lots of new members signed up, numbers soon to be announced here. In the meantime, check out these pictures:
