wow, great day out with retrobikers!

thanks to all 19 riders+me for attending. a good turnout for march in yorkshire :wink:hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as i did 8)

the weather behaved nicely with early showers but came good big style.
please add your words and pics here.


thanks!

well, i'm glad you all enjoyed the day. it's surprising what you can make out of little with some adventure spirit! 16+ miles of various terrain and back drop. the after ride mini-market/karma thing is always welcome. i'm always searching for more routes to keep us off street corners.

fantastic show of bikes on saturday and cheers for all the pics.

Just what I needed, a nice gentle ride with great company and a superb selection of bikes to drool over, my personal favourite was the lush green DeKerf

Thanks to MarcTT for organising this ride, sorting the lunch food out & the bike wash afterwards

My Pics here... really enjoyed the day and even came home with some Karma - cheers Longun!

Really friendly crowd... and special thanks to Marc for planning the route. My personal favourite bike of the ride was Paininthe's Dynatech, although the Pace RC200 I was lucky enough to have a go on was a very close second!

Oh and sorry can't remember your name... I do now remember that black Kona. It was a Hahanna... Yes I did sell it on here, by the time the fuel and post were accounted for I made a loss!

It was the heaviest bike I have ever owned... :D :D
