Post subject:  Road riding

As the long awaited return of my road bike has finally happened, I am keen on getting involved in some rides with fellow Retrobikers. However there seems to me, to be a scarceness to the events. With many MTB rides being arranged I figured that, surely, there must be interest in the road riding aspect too.

As any ride I do go along to would so far be my first, I'm not too sure of how to go about setting this up. I wonder if anyone is, like me, interested in leaving the hustle and bustle of 'city life' for a peaceful trip through the countryside and scenery that we are blessed with.

If there is any interest, I am very keen to know and be helped with arranging an event, and getting to know some likewise riders :D

Easiest way is just get a few names down as interested parties, decide a date that suits you all and a route and away you go.

There are no rules as such, just the normal rules of the road.

I don't have a road bike (but hope to sort myself out with one fro next summer) to join you, but there will be a few nice routes to choose over the wolds.

Simpler than I thought.

Yep :D

Just a thought. ChrisV40 from over the bridge is a bit of a roadie so it might be worth while putting a post in the Yorkshire section too.

Longun is from Scunny and has recently got the roadie bug too.

As previously mentioned there would be no rules, so any bike would be fine :wink:

And it would just be a leisurely cruise soaking up the sights :D

If we can get a few people on board, I think we would probably just pick a place (cafe, tea room etc.) and just enjoy the ride on the way.
So spread the word!! :D :D

Slicks is a good idea.
Basically it should be a bike you're comfortable riding.
When I ride I always have tools to fix most things, so that wont be an issue.

If anyone who is interested, asks around we should be able to get a larger involvement pretty quickly.
