Plymouth to Barnstaple 70 or 100ish miles (on-road) through sunny Devon on the 13th June.

The Mrs. and I have signed up, I'll be riding retro of course. It's pay to enter and sponsorship required I believe (in aid of North Devon Hospice).

A wonderful day :D

The Mrs. had two flats just outside Plymouth but we cracked on, caught up and had a great ride.

There were quite a few 'older' bikes, an interesting mix.

I noticed in particular an old, old Marin in yellow and blue with a disc brake conversion(a strut/brace running from the 'converter' and affixed to the brake boss), a Klein Fervour? + retro road bikes.

I've developed a bit of a bug for it :wink: Minehead (80ish mile round trip) and back sounds good, some steep hills on Exmoor!
