Do you actually own anything 'retro'? Do you want to borrow something? :P

I might do the route tomorrow

it'll be very dry, lots of tarmac because thats how Cambs is these days but you'll get the idea when we get there.

My house is now a storage centre for the missus' business so just ignore it.

BBQ in the afternoon if anybody wants to hang around for a while.

Burgers & bangers bought, BBQ cleaned up, garden sort of cleaned up.

Be here - PE28 4EZ - for around 10am ~ 11am

Breakfast Bacon sarnies on request.

Route has lots of tarmac first then lots of off road so bring the right bike to be comfy for about 30 miles.

Pub stop on the way.

House is out of bounds for now as it looks like a storage warehouse as the missus business is in full swing.
