Never too early to flag this event up. This isn't a Retrobike organised event.

http://www.green-events.co.uk/events.php#id19

I'll be there. Who else is coming?

supposed to be working but was thinking about taking the shifts off, haven't thought about a hotel yet but the one i used last year was ok just frustrating that it was 10 miles away from the event but then i'm not a big drinker so didn't really matter.

I'll be there, but will do the sensible thing and leave the bike at home and get the train up with the locals :D :D

Do you guys do both days or one only and what distance options are chosen. Looks cold, hardwork and just asking for a crash as beer involved :lol:

the last 2 years i have had a few drinks on friday evening, then done whatever distance feels comfortable depending on the weather, then had a few more drinks then hit the hotel, then we meet up with Ededwards in hereford on sunday for lunch!

good weekend! 8)

in 14 years of attending I have only ever managed 1 day :oops: :lol: Have done a variety of routes (not always well signposted :shock: :lol:), max is around 25 miles though, usually about 15 or less.

Usually beer or two fri night, sleep in car, ride sat, 1 beer en route (no danger of beer affecting the ride really), a few beers sat night, lots of live entertainment (inc. the sight of grannygrinder getting more and more drunk :lol: ), sleep in car, full english breakfast in pub sun morning, then roast lunch in pub in Hereford at lunchtime, make way home sadly.

Top weekend 8)

PS recent times I have always done singlespeed, Velo :wink:

Oh, and see my avatar? That was at the Wobble a few years ago 8)
