Think it's time to organise another retrobike meet.

Ideas for venues and dates please :D (when is the south coast ride going on?!?)

Wales around October sounds perfect. Would love to see the bikes from this site in the flesh.

I was planning to do a Snowdon run around that time with a few mates (if they turned up on modern bikes would anyone talk to them?)

North Wales is still "south" - geographically!

If I remember, the centre of the UK is Caton, near Lancaster.

Below Birmingham is a nightmare for us Northerners :(

Just checked and Snowdon is about 5h drive from london . :cry:

I think 3 hours drive need to be the limit , otherwise overnight accomodation and extra costs would be involved .
