Great Weather 8)

Great Trails through the huge vast Thetford Forest :)

Well done gang, look forward to the next one.

The best thing about the meeting point was that we had our own car park! Several bemused people driving in and wondering why it was full....

Many thanks to the Anglian group for organising a good day out. Great trails all helped by the amazing weather. Cheers to everybody I chatted to and caught up with a few I have met before. What a great selection of bikes on show. Sorry about my squeaky forks - yes I did forget the grease. I was properly worn out by the time I got home. Looking forward to the next meet in May.
:D

Great day out ,thanks to the team who organised this ride
As ever great bunch of guys and a great selection of well loved bikes on show
I think mine was cleaner after the ride than when I started :D
Good mix of pace too at first I was finding it too slow but after lunch and up at the front it was great something for everyone :wink:

Another great National ride with great weather :D

Thanks to Chris, Dan & Neil for doing a great job & to John for the pure sugar/ Golden syrup energy boost :lol:

Also thanks to Steve for the lift.

i just wish i could get rid of the pins & needles in my toes on rides :?
It would make them so much more fun.

Anyway can't wait for Leith Hill :)

Weather was just unreal - a BBQ would have been perfect!!

Completely different for me riding somewhere so flat, a different challenge keeping the speed up...

Firstly a BIG THANK YOU to all those concerned who organised this fantastic event. I don't use the word 'perfection' very often, but this Thetford ride was perfect in every sense of the word. It was my first Retroride and I was made very welcome by the more experienced riders and organisers. The trail, pace and length of rides was also spot on, along with the quality of bikes on show in the car park. Simply a great day! 8)

If 'Carlsberg' did bike rides it would be a Retrobike ride at Thetford on a sunny day! :lol:

ps 'watch out for those Adders'! :shock: (in joke)
