I said dont laugh.


I'm being relatively serious with the following. Those that know me will probably have a good chuckle. Well here goes...

I'm thinking of perhaps suggesting the idea of creating a "retro bike team" to do SSMM. How cool would that be?

I'm totally unfit but if I get in training now I might manage 1 lap....so with that in mind would anyone like to join in? All we need is a team of 4 - I think (have to do my homework first) and if we wear disguise we could essentially use er...backup members just in case some of us dont survive.

Condition would be that we ride strictly retro gear with "powered by retrobike" merchandise?


Any takers or is this another stupid idea of mine.



(and we could get well pished too in the evenings)

the concept of jez carrying his mtn goat coz the frames too clogged with mud & sh.te @ 3am in the dark pi$$in rain (like the last 2years yeh ;D) for the whole 10mile lap is just too funny :lol:

Probably use a rubbish bike for the evenings events. Might put an advert out for a R Activator and see what turns up...
