Please note that there will be a 'King of the Mountains' competition and prize, centred around a nadgery if not gnarly climb in Pindale Quarry. Based on a longest drive golf competition, each rider tries the ascent, stopping where they first dab and waiting for the next rider to try and beat their achievement. This happens about an hour into the ride, so you'll all be warm enough by then...
There will be other awards or prizes for a number of inevitable events and mishaps that will occur during the day, namely:
> The Hilts Trophy for the Majorest Mechanical
> The Lantern Rouge Trophy for Worst Ride of the Day - voted secretly by all participating riders
> The Best Turned Out RetroBike and Rider Award - again voted by the riders
> The 'Own the Hill' Award for best overall effort shown on the grinds - Captain's discretion (in consultation with EdEdwards)
- and of course, the biggy - the second Annual Retrobike Pub Quiz - can JV hang on to his anal crown for another year?
Anyone who wants/needs my mobile - just PM me (especially those habitually late or people who get lost easy!)
Remember this is a 'friends invitational ride' - not a club or group organised event. By joining us for the ride you must be prepared to look after yourself, ride within your limits and always wear a helmet.
Think that's it - fingers crossed for the weather... yeah, right...
