Bit of an update, before I bugger off on holiday for a week :D
Raymondmole contacted me yesterday with details of a Purbecks retro ride that he has already started organising.
Its with a group of local riders who are regulars riders on The Purbecks, and he's got a group of 15 riders so far!

Here is the poster he has put up in local bike shops, which I'm sure will attract further punters.....

Be good if we could start getting an idea of numbers from here who are intending to come along. A good turn-out of forum members would be good, as there could be plenty of recruiting to do :lol:

If anyone has any questions about the ride/local transport etc while I'm away, then I'm sure that local members Lumos2000 or Raymondmole will be able to help.
As I said at the start, I could put-up a few people at my flat if anyone want to travel from further a-field for this

Balls to it so long as the weekend before in Dartmoor doesnt kill me, Im keen, any one able to put me up for a night as I'll be coming from London.

Also dont worry about waiting for my slow arse, I'll continiue at my own pace...on my own pace :P

You're welcome to reserve the sofa-bed at mine Rob. May suggest a local curry the night before, for whoever is interested

thought i'd just quickley check this thread for a date as i didn't think i'd be able to make it coz of poo loads of overtime but it is possible!!! i can be there!!! woo hoo!! :D

although i expect to be seriousley at the back!!! severe lack of riding due to work! :(

a postcode for the satnav and details of a place to park would be useful

cheers
