Any one?

Thetford?
A ride from my place - could re-visit some of the Herts Epic route?
Fancy doing Swinley - not too far

I'm interested but it'll be a while before my retro bike is back in one piece. :(

Thetford's a bit of a pain to get to from anywhere north (military) or west (forest and A11) of it, isn't it? I don't know where those other two places are.

I'll modify that. I'm interested as long as it's not an official ride of this site. I don't wear a helmet - not even a retro one.

How about joining the Reach Ride, Cambridge Guildhall, 10am, Bank Holiday Monday 4 May - add a historic contingent to the ride to a historic fair?

I'm up for that. Have rode this with the family for the last couple of years but i think it maybe just myself and the older boy this year. We normally pick it up from the Newmarket Road p +r for ease of parking ( and cheapness )

Oops! It's 09.30am this year (10am Newmarket Road P+R) to make sure everyone gets to Reach for the start.

Looks interesting. Is there a beer tent?

Nicely not upto date but it gives you the idea. Just under 30 miles at a leisurely pace to and from the country fair. Most types of food and drink there and i'm sure there is a pub on the green anyhow....

Oh, and there might be some parkpre stuff here that needs re-homing....

I should be there, trains permitting. I'm http://Twitter.com/mjray and the bike is https://social.mayfirst.org/mjray/ and I'll probably stand near the guildhall on whichever edge has shade! Be great to say hi to any other retro bikers.

I think there was a beer tent last year. There's definitely a pub.

Well that was good to ride with Echo Bay and 845 others! Maybe see more of you next year and we can fly a RB flag or something?
