I'll stick my name down for this one, just need to dust off the bike.

Edit: looks like I'm booked up that weekend I'm afraid.

Is it a retro bike only event? Or can I bring the modern? I've hardly ridden it recently and its perfect for this route....

Trying also to reduce risk of injuring myself ahead of huge USA trip which is costing many ££££'s.

But the whole point of Retro rides is to ride them on retrobikes. I suggest you get yourself a comfy late 90's 60mm frontsus bike built up quickly ;)

You just don't ride down the tracks as fast, it's part of the challenge and kind of the point of the whole thing. Stick some modern sympathetic tat on and old frame and cheat a bit, just keep the important bits retro ;-)


Saying that, I don't think I can make it to this :( Cannot get there and it's a long way to ride the bike and the trains to expensive and too much of a hassle from here..

Just slow down and ride at a gentlemanly pace. You'll be amongst gentlemen so it won't be a problem.
