PoCo April 14th, 2016

Thursday:  The Norco Project O bike is coming… and Westwood Cycle is giving you the excluse pass to see this game changer bike. This will be a new shorter travel enduro bike for our area. We cant really say more at this time (or else we’ll have to … you know…) but what I can say is that this is the one chance you have to be first on trail with this new platform that is being launched at the sea otter classic! Today at 7pm @ Westwood Cycle


Coq RCMP:  Can you help ‪#‎SurreyRCMP‬ identify these suspects? (Pics at link)
