Leicester Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan - April 2024

What a blast! Sikh Motorcycle Club UK cruised into the Nottingham Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan this past Sunday, April 21st. It was an incredible experience for everyone, especially since it was our second year participating!
The procession was exceptionally well-managed, the weather was perfect, and the sangat (community) was simply amazing. We even got to fuel up on the delicious langar (community meals) offered by so many stalls along the way.
But the best part? Reconnecting with old friends and making tons of new ones! We even welcomed 6 new members who joined us for the ride and were blown away by the love and support shown to Sikh riders. The whole event was filmed by Sikh Channel, Akaal Channel, and PBC Channel, so keep an eye out for that! All in all, an unforgettable day!
