Ladies & Gents,
I'm a member of the organising commitee for Bike Blenheim Palace. In 2012 the event is going to be expanded to 2 days & we are looking to include more cycling disciplines. I wondered whether any Retrobikers might want to get involved?

The events that might be of interest include:
1. 20km TT on the closed Blenheim park roads
2. 40km off road sportive
3. 1km Sprint up the main drive to the palace

We can create a Retrobike category for each race.

I'd also be keen to hear if you would like to have a stand & show of some of your lovely metal.

Some of you may have seen coverage of the Brompton World Championships that are hosted at BBP every year. Here is some info about the event:

Let me know your thoughts,

If you're thinking of a good turnout, possibly put it forward as a National RB Event Special ?

Ok, guys, I've got the thumbs up today from 'race control' - we'll be adding a Retrobike category to the following events:

1. 40km XC sportive
2. 20km TT
3. Cyclocross (details TBC)

If you have any other ideas about how you can get further involved, let me know.
