I propose a fun run, on the same day, free. Maybe regional ones. Lets conveniently meet.
Yeah, I like this. We need to show them that we do this because we love it, and don't appreciate being ripped off for doing what we love.
That would be good, but from what I have heard these regional rides are poorly attended. I have 4-5 friends with period bikes and we do rides, they are great fun, but they are not the Eroica.
It is nice being part of something great and well organised.
Can you offer this in your regional ride?
The Monsal Trails. All routes go along and through these incredible marvels of Victorian engineering, our own 'Strade Bianchi' - excitingly incorporating a series of outstanding viaducts and tunnels. Enjoy exclusive access into the World famous Cromford Mills Heritage Site, the first water-powered cotton spinning mill in the world also the first to successfully implement the combination of power, machinery and human endeavour which became the basis of modern industrial production. Exclusive: We have gained special permission from the Duke of Devonshire to ride through many of the private routes of the Chatsworth Estate, offering an exclusively private aspect of one of the most famous estates in the UK. Be FIRST to the food stop: each village is a mini gastronomic festival in its own right overflowing with local delights and beer!
It could be all marketing bullxxit, but maybe instead they are going to deliver onthe above and it could be truly amazing
