Might be worth poking Graham John Wallace, he's in Wendover.
Rides a Highpath from 1986ish...

I'm not sure which region Bucks falls into...probably more South East?

All the best,

Hi Dan and jujupunk.

Did someone mention the magic word - HIGHPATH?

There are no RetroBike rides in Bucks that I know of, apart from the annual Cleland reunion ride held on the first Sunday in December. This is organised by me and is intended for any riders interested in the early British school of mountain biking inspired by the bikes of Geoff Apps, who's Cleland Cycles company was originally based in Aylesbury in the late 1970s.

There are also other small rides organised from time to time but these are not promoted though newcomers are more than welcome.

By coincidence, the Rough Stuff fellowship (RSF) do have a section based at High Wycombe and they are holding a joint off-road event with the local branch of the Veteran Cycling Club next Sunday. I will be riding and there should be at least six Clelands being ridden or displayed.

If you would like details of this RSF event contact Francis on 07850 740591 for details.

The nearest RetroBike rides are those of the East Anglia and Lincolnshire group who have a ride on Saturday 21st July 2012 starting from Alconbury near St Neots Cambridgeshire.

I hope this info helps.

Graham.

Wendover? Next Sundays' ride starts from High Wycombe not Wendover. There will however be a figure-of-8 route with various finishing time options including night riding.

In one event three British traditions of:
* pre-road veteran cycle riding
* Rough Stuff recreational riding (in which almost any type of bike can be used)
* and the Cleland/Highpath tradition of purpose designed off-road bikes
.... all come together at one ride.

This should be a really interesting celebration of these three British, pre-mountain biking, off-roading traditions. 8)

There will also be American style "Mountain Bikes"

If you would like details of this RSF/V-CC/CXC event contact Francis on 07850 740591

Doh, I'm at a festival on the weekend of the Wendover ride. Shame as I ride up there a fair bit.

There's also http://www.bucksoffroadsportive.co.uk/.. I'm seriously considering heading out on this one

In fact we had nine Clelands and Highpaths being displayed or ridden at this event.
