With the dates announced for Mountain Mayhem 2013, I thought it might be a good idea to set up a thread for anyone who is seriously considering riding this year.
The dates are the weekend of the 15th and 16th of June.The 'race' usually starts at 12 noon on the Saturday and finishes 24 hours later at 12 noon on the Sunday.
Many people will aim to arrive on the Friday, which is the 14th of June this time. Some people arrive even earlier.
The Retrobike area has historically comprised a covered social area, casks of real ale, a bangin' sound system, Jean Michelle Jarre-esque light and laser show, a smoke machine and the infamous RB Hecklermaphone.
More details will of course follow once we've sorted out all the team entries.
If the usual team options apply then you will need to choose between 10 person team, 5 person mixed gender team (at least one male or female on each team), 4 man team, 4 women team and solo.
There is also a singlespeed category.
The entry deadline is normally the end of February.
The Retrobike Area Event Coordinators (AECs) will be coordinating team entries again this year, and I'm happy to oversee things.
Last year we had over 50 riders representing Retrobike and I'm sure we'll be able to have a great Retrobike contingent once again in 2013.
So post up here if you are thinking of riding. Please include your preferred team category and the area group/people you think you belong to or would like to ride with.
Based on this thread and from skimming through the area groups this is what I am surmising so far.
Hopefully this will help to match up people with other team mates.
Let me know by posting on this thread of any updates.
Please contact team captains to join a team or sort out new teams/captains as and when appropriate.
Team captains will need to take care of entering their teams when they open on February 28th.10 man:West Midlands Ten
