Belting pictures and good weather too, looks like a top ride :D . I don't mind a bit o' climbing either, not sure about doing it with a bike on my shoulder though! :lol: I was cursing the fact that I couldn't go (bloody volcano). A 400 mile round trip without sharing the driving would have killed me though. :cry:

Looking at the pics it looks like the ride might have been tough in places on old machinery, gotta have a bit of mechanical sympathy for the old warhorses and think about using something with good stoppers and suspension maybe? Hats off to those who did it retro but I wouldn't want to put my older bikes through any sort of punishment. I guess a full report of the ride will tell us just how hard / retro friendly the ride was.

Well done guys. :D

trying to stop 16.5stone with v-brakes killed my arms/wrists. my back and shoulders were knacked off the 1'' travel forks and i felt every piece of slate/gravel through the skinny 1.95 rubber......


would i do it again?........HELL YES :twisted:

loved every minute of it, great bikes, great scenery and most of all superb company!
