Well, the inaugural meeting of the SW Retrobike Massive seems to have been a storming success. Thanks must go to Mr Hoarder and Mr …Scott for keeping us on the straight and sometimes particularly narrow. Thanks most definitely also goes to Mr Toad for permitting us to invade his local for beer and roast potatoes (well it was a sunday after all) and for assisting mother natures desire to keep us nearer sea level.

To those who travelled from a little further afield, it was great to put faces to some names at long last – the beginnings of some solid friendships were forged today 8)

The weather was, unfortunately, typical quantocks. And whilst it may have dampened the trails and our kit it certainly didn't dampen the spirits.

Thank you, everyone, for making today a memorable ride – roll on the next one

(And a few happy memories caught on cam)

Good turnout! Looks like a fun day out. :)

Is someone going to do the left to right naming thingy on the above pic?

It was an enjoyable day on the Quantocks and seeing some retro bikes, I think I should have put bigger tyres after falling off the bike twice going downhill :roll:

We should do it again sometime when it's drier, thanks chaps for a nice ride.
