Just did a quick calculation... £60 in fuel there and back for me :shock:

That's before I consider staying over a night somewhere.

Anyone got a spare bit of floor I could kip on the night before or after?

Would any local riders reckon I'd get away with a 1x9 speed set up (32t chainring, 11/32t cassette) bearing in mind I'm not the fittest of riders ;)

Being new to retrobike I'm looking forward to meeting up, it will make a change not to be the only guy on a bike from the antique roadshow.

regards to all

32x16 ss is fine so 1x9 with a 32x32 bottom gear will be no problem.

Top banana! Or am I getting my fruits confused :?

Fancy the same arrangement as before, collecting CharlieBoy on-route? Hopefully without the blow-out this time! :shock: :lol:


It could be a plan, I ll be in touch.
