Superb day out, full marks for organisation, guiding, trails, company and weather. It was great to see faces I recognised and to chat to ones I didn't.

Hopefully I'll be able to make the Surrey ride too

For all of us who have just completed our first Retrobike ride, do we automatically get the 'Retrobike Rider' blue badge under our tag name, or do we have to apply or something? This would be the 'icing on the cake' to such a great day in Thetford. 8)

If you rode a retro bike then contact one of the ride organisers, who will then get a banner sorted for you

As soon as Drystonepaul gets the list of who attended and what they rode online the banner awards can be sorted.

Thanks, but as my ride for the day was a fully restored 1998 :oops: Kona Explosif (steel HT, 8 speed and v-brakes), does that exclude me from the banner award as I was riding a post '97 'modern' mountain bike? :(

neil__j - KHS Montana Pro
Danson67 - Klein Mantra
LGF - 1993 GT Zaskar
GT-Steve - Orange Alu O / Seven Sola

Rob Atkin - 1991 Rocky Mountain Experience
rc200ti - Pace RC200 F5
Captain Cosmic - 1992 Rocky Mountain Blizzard
Peakie400 - 1991 Orange Alu O (Spirit of the ride winner)
Northern Dave - Fat Chance Buck Shaver
Ted C - 1994 Kona Explosif
GRD - Fat Chance Shock-a-Billy
GRD's wife Karen - Klein Attitude Race

+5 other riders without forum names and/or unintelligible handwriting which makes 44.
So I'm guessing a couple of people didn't sign in as we counted 46 on the day.
Post up if you'd like to be added to the list or if I have any of the details wrong.

Cheers.
