Only nailed down date is BDW for which the campsite has been booked. Being summer, in the Lakes one has to move fast.

Rough BDW schedule is..

Sunday, Whinlatter or Grizedale trails. Early finish.

A route recce will take place at some point in May to which anyone is welcome.

Seven of those are within a hours drive of Penistone- two within 30 minutes drive one of which is right on your doorstep. Then there is the Global Nightride which is wherever you may be at the time.

Try and remember it's a large area we have to cover so not all rides will be local.

Several of those rides will be a 5-6 hour round trip for me so I don't think you are too badly done by.

I'm going to knock up a map with the locations on at some point this week. Keep an eye out for it. It might give you a better idea.

Really fancy this but doing the Newcastle - Edinburgh Castles ride the weekend before so would be really eager to assist with the recce.

I know it is not easy but firm dates are really appreciated for any of the other rides.

Pretty difficult to work on exact dates until a month or so before the ride. It all depends on what dates are convenient for the majority. Some dates are fixed long before so keep an eye out. We always try and give 6-8 weeks notice of upcoming rides were possible.

Don't forget you can put up your own rides if you want if none are close to you.

For example I'll be missing a lot of these and popping over the area border with the Lincs lot, we'll also be going on a few further a field rides with the Lincs lot so like down Sherwood or over to the peaks. You're not restricted to just riding on these planned main events.

Pop up something you can get to and if we can we'll see if we can get down.

These are the dates for the main official RetroBike rides that RetroBike are putting on for people to enjoy.
