Ok....the day fast approaches so would be great to get an idea of who is planning to come along.
List so far seems to be...
Me
Lumos2000
Raymondmole (and the local riders)
Gravymonster
Jonnyboy666
Heathy
Guybe
Conceptsails


TBC..
Wutangled?
Carefull now?
Retroyetrigid?
Stocko?
Splatterpaint?

Also... although the poster for the retro-ride being organised through Raymondmole states no disc brakes etc, please dont be put off attending if you only have a modern bike to ride on the day (may be able to lend something out if you're really stuck :wink: )
The rides I've been on through this forum have been more about having a laugh and a good day out than worrying about what you're riding on the day.

As for parking...there are a few options open. I will be riding to the ferry so people are more than welcome to park at mine and do the same.
Its a level ride along the prom, and serves as a nice warm-up too :wink:
There is also plenty of parking close to the ferry. There is a large car-park at Sandbanks, which is 5mins from the ferry.

If anyone wants further info, feel free to drop me a pm :D

I was going to put a meeting time and place up tomorrow, but no time like the present :D

I'd say to meet at the ferry for 10am. Gives plenty of time to make sure we're all there.
We also have a couple of riders that will be meeting us the other side of the ferry (mars bar prize for the first one to spot the retroBIKE sticker :wink: )
For those driving, just head for Sandbanks and then I'd suggest parking at the Sandbanks beach carpark and cycling up to the ferry.
There is limited parking at the ferry, but not worth a trip around the one-way system if its full.

If anyone fancies parking at mine (free :wink: ) and then spining along the prom, then an 09:30 meet suits me.
