I might be on a non-retro rigid bike for this. :oops:
I'm going to justify it because I view the Krampus as a logical progression of a balloon tyre cruiser, so it's basically a modern version of the original Marin County bikes ;)

I'm up for this, Although I may be joining the slow crowd :oops: (never been on a retrobike ride so who knows).

Having been up this morning (although not Holford itself) I can confirm it was very wet, and rocky. But the rigid coped ok.... Just the rider struggled :lol:

At times I was pretty much riding along stream beds rather than tracks, Great fun though. :D

Hope people are still up for this.
I'm guessing conditions should be pretty good up there after the recent dry weather.
I did 45 miles offroad across Dartmoor today, and it was dry as a bone!
See you all next Sunday. ;)

Hehehe, I won't be ready for another one of those again for a while. My legs are still feeling it!
Was a good ride though, started at Yeoford did 14 miles on the road to Belstone and then rode across Dartmoor offroad to Ivybridge :D
