Are there any Retro Bikers attending this event or would be interested in a trip to bonnie Scotland for a few days?

Very tempted, heck of a trek although I'm sure that it would be well worth it

I've been on the offroad cycle route at Drumlanrig and it's fantastic. Beautiful castle too and there's a cycle museum next to the castle as well with an AMP B3, some titanium frame (forget which), and some other biking exotica.

Did not know SSUK was to be held at Drumlanrigg but as I do now then hopefully I'll attend. Not far in the great scheme of things for me and my Retrobikes lend themselves well to SS conversion. Took part in SSUK in 2004 in Aviemore coming joint last with a few others so I can at least match that placing !!!!!!!!!

Ironically I was chatting with my Missis the other day about fitness targets for the summer i.e. Some level of fitness compared to running out of steam on the first hill :oops: .. The conversation contiuned and went on a tangent about this event and being in a pretty part of Scotland. She like the sound of the event and has agreed to come along and possibly participate if she can get on with riding a singlespeed bike.

After last year's SSWC I vowed to never ever ride my rigid SS in Scotland again :lol:

But you never know ...

Sleeper train from London is a good way to travel to Scotland.

I've done it now and committed myself by registering thus I'll be at Drumlanrigg in May.

I'll be defending my last SSUK04 position of last place.

Next need to get fit and decide which bike in my fleet gets the SS treatment.

We should try and get a Retro contingent there, it would be a laugh !

Cheers
