The Retrobike RetroRoadRide Series 2013

It seemed like high time to formalise the RetroRoadRides that have been going on over the past few years into a Calendar so that's what we've done.

Image

The photo above is a bit misleading - it's less about hammering along on the rivet in a peloton and much more about a group of like minded people getting together for a sociable ride in great settings. Don't worry, you can keep up!

We've managed to put together a really varied series this year around the UK with both old favourites and new rides. No two will be the same but in general expect 40-50 miles with some sort of cafe/pub/food stop.

Details can be found here: --> http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=236595

"Helmets must be worn on Retrobike rides. No helmet - no ride."

Shame about that.

Not a shame, a sensible rule and probably an insurance stipulation.

Would you not join us purely because we insist on a few grams of polystyrene on your brain bucket, really ??????? :shock:
