The Retrobike National MTB Event Series 2013

For the past two years the Retrobike National Series has been a resounding success, with rides regularly attracting up to 60 like minded retro enthusiasts, having a great time on some quality trails. Last year over 130 individuals participated in the rides.

2013 promises to be another amazing year for Retrobike riding.
Your regional area groups in great shape with rides regularly being organised, and once again we have put together another cracking National Series to get people out riding on their old bikes.

The National Series is the cream of the Retrobike rides squeezed into a seven round series. We've done our very best to spread them around the United Kingdom, offer some of the very best trails and also make the series completely free to enter.

Get out your diaries, here are the dates:

Rd 1: Lake District ~ Saturday 23rd March :: Announcement

Rd 2: Long Mynd ~ Sunday 28th April :: Announcement

Rd 3: Aviemore - Scotland ~ Weekend of 25th - 26th May - main ride on Saturday :: Announcement

Rd 4: North York Moors ~ Weekend of 20th - 21st July - main ride on Sunday :: Announcement

Rd 5: South East/Surrey Hills ~ Sunday 18th August :: Announcement

Rd 6: Peak District ~ Saturday 14th September :: Announcement

Rd 7: Forest of Dean ~ Saturday 12th October (Please note the change of venue) :: Announcement


Plus the usual Retrobike attendance at:

The series is non-competitive, but to add to the interest points and special prizes may be awarded for: -

- Riding Retro
- Wearing Retro (RB kit inclusive)
- Bike of The Ride
- Spirit of the Ride
- Skinwall Tyres
- Sense of Humour
- Regional Bonus for distance travelled

But what we give with one hand we’ll take with another and could deduct points for: -

- Piking (a technical term for not turning up when you said you would)
- Mechanicals
- Punctures
- Riding a Modern Bike

Helmets must be worn on Retrobike rides. No helmet - no ride.

Look out for ride announcements and please keep checking our calendar for more details.

IMPORTANT: Please note that the series will now start on Saturday 23rd March in the Lake District.

The series was originally planned to visit Thetford on the weekend of the 23rd and 24th March. Unfortunately due to widespread forestry work destroying many of the trails, this round has been cancelled.

The Lake District ride was scheduled to take place a month earlier, but to avoid a gap in the series this will shuffle forward and take place in March rather than in February.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
