On each and every NW&NWA ride one lucky Retrobike will be judged 'Bike of The Ride'. How its judged will be be on a random basis decided by the ride leader, if you win you get one of these unique seat tube stickers.

More randomness at Pauls latest Macclesfield ride. BoTR went to OrangeEd's Proflex, proving reliability isn't needed to win the coveted title.

I guess this is what happens when sympathetic modern riders on big bouncy bikes get to choose their favourite bike. Pick out the one that looked the most like their own and pity the fact it had a puncture. :roll:

Still, at least on this ride the judges actually saw the bikes this time. :lol:

I suppose at least this 'Bike of the Ride' stuff can't ever be called predictable.
