problem 1... have plenty of bikes to ride... ok not really a problem...

problem 2...not seen anyone round here who rides retro....so if you do ride retro in the stoke on trent area get in touch here....

there are lots of good places to ride in and around this area,i think the problem is no one coming forward to set up ride meets.. a favourite ride of mine used to be chatterley whitfield pit then on through the lanes and fields to knypersley pool and surrounding area....used to be brilliant at sun down or early morning....especially early morning and stopping for filled oatcakes in biddulph at poveys

Well, I'm in Leek Fridays and weekends, and with in-laws in Biddulph, so something should be doable.
Maybe via High Lane for the oatcakes, though. :wink:

Rides also around Park Hall and Apedale/Silverdale area...even just along the canal sometimes.

All the best,

Not local but it's not a million miles from the NW rabble...

Signing up for updates, if you have a route we can help with making it into a RetroRide, no bother :wink:

I'm off to stoke tomorrow to look at a truck so if the journey isn't so bad I'd be up for a ride.
