Yep, a fantastic day out, took me a while to try and find some sort of form in my legs, and by then, the day was over.. :oops:

Nice, as ever, to see old (very old, and tired) faces, and some new ones too. Always difficult to chat to everyone.. :oops:

Was nice to have another ride where I went over the handlebars (only maybe two people saw it) but that's becoming a bit of a tradition. :oops: :lol:

Time to improve fitness now, methinks.. 8)

A few of us are riding again tomorrow. Doing the Black Route and some selected choice bits of off-piste. Same place 10:30am for 11:00am start. Glutten for punishment comes to mind.

Will report back afterwards ...

The great Retrobike spirit was certainly alive and well in Thetford today. Couldn't really have been much better.
Thanks to all as usual.
See you at the next one.
