Great event, will keep doing them seen as it's so local!
Managed a respectable 4h7mins over the 41.5 miles
The 1st 20 miles everyone seemed to be overtaking me, then after 20 miles I was overtaking folks & no one overtook me. Got a good turn of speed in on some familiar sections round Ravendale, Wold Newton & Binbrook
Weather held off till just after I finished, but did get wet helping dismantle all the Cube promo stuff (big gazebo, feather banners, bikes, catalogues...)
Beat the other mechanic from work by ~15 mins & the gaffer by ~30 mins, mission accomplished
Just like a Retrobike ride everyone was friendly, saw a Proflex, a Pace RC200F8 & plenty of retro Kona's, might be worth making it into a Retrobike event & getting those retro riders who were there on board the forum, I would have promoted RB but there wasn't much time in between cursing the bloody hills, cursing the cramp & general profanities....
