Announcement of the date and location of BDW2010



Event will be based on a quiet campsite behind a traditional country pub, serving good food and fine ales. Local B & B accomodation is available if camping is not for you. Subject to numbers RetroBike will have a large separate campsite for our exclusive use. Secure storage will be available for your precious bikes and belongings when we are away.

This years featured manufacturer is PACE and we hope to have the largest ever gathering of square tubed bikes on display with prizes supplied by Fork English.


Route Recce has been completed for both days and route offers something for everyone from fast and flowing oldskool singletrack to killer climbs and technical descents.


To give us an idea of numbers please check your Diary and place your interest below.

Camping is just £7 and special ltd edition T-Shirts are available pre-ordered at just £8. This is a non profit event and camping, food and T-Shirts are all payable on the day.

This will be a cracking event with a big Yorkshire welcome- but as ever it needs you to make it special, so put down that polishing cloth and we'll see you 'oop on't moor'

Cheers

Excellent :D

Pace thing is something I have wanted to do for a long time, almost Yeti tribe meet style

I will have a word with Adrian, can't promise anything but if you promise him a beer you might even get a special guest :wink:

Dates on Calendar, time to dust off the Bike Jumble spares

He can have several if he finds a set of grey cable guides down the back of the sofa!!

A large Pace gathering was actually Jerkys idea last year. Will be great to get a load of them together in one place.

Would like to point out this is not a Pace only event, anything and anyone is welcome but try and keep the bikes retro in spirit if you have to bring something modern.

Had a few confirmations by PM and already into double figures. Good ole Bas is putting a Dutch party together to give it an international flavour too.

More details over the next few days.

Cheers
Si

I'm thinking of coming along to this, can't confirm just yet though

I don't have a retro mountain bike (only a road bike at the mo), although my modern mtb does have square (ish) tubing.... and it's British ;)

Would being an ageing retro rider count me in on this meet?

Whilst normally impossible - just ask the Girlfriend (Boom Boom! ha ha ha ha ha etc etc), I would like to be considered possible for this event.
