Tickets have already gone on sale for next years Big Bike Bash.
For those who haven't been, this is a cracking event in The New Forest, Hampshire.
It's basically a weekend of mountain biking 'races' of varying degree's of seriousness (including a 'pint to pint' race :lol: ) plus a lake-jump comp on the Sunday!
There's lots of races for kids, and the facilities/showers etc on site are good.
There's also a beer tent all weekend plus live music.

This years event was my first time, but others on here have been going for years.
Having been on numerous retrobike rides/events, I can honestly say that Big Bike Bash is tailor made for us lot :D
I'd go as far as to say that this could be an ideal 'leg' of our national rides series for 2012!
A bit of info from last year... http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=162652

Loving it thanks! 4K miles already :shock:
I've realised that the weekend of BBB is also the weekend my Sister gets married. I hope they don't miss me in the pics too much :D

If I can afford this aswell then I'm game, although Brighton usually wipes out that month's play money allowance.

Looking to come along this year with la familia and had a quick question for the BBB veterans - what goes on on the sunday i.e. what time does it finish? Is it worth camping the sunday night?

I'm a veteran, but not of BBB :wink:
Last year the lake jumping finished early afternoon and then there were presentations until around 4.
I think all of the facilities (mainly the bar!) are closed on the Sunday night.
We all left on the Sunday evening, but then I only live 10 miles away

I'll be there. I might even ride retro this year, it's ideal for it down there.

I've done all 3 of them so far and it's possibly my cycling highlight of the year. Just brilliant fun! :)
