Just realised there wasn't a thread up, at least not that I can find.
Might organise it a bit better next year and get a group out.
BUT its a family thing and that makes it harder staying together as I fund. Damn pesky kids wanting to ride and do stuff ;-)

Well Me, Spudly, DanD and Longun and I spotted Luke as well turned up.
Anyone else turn up.

Nicer route than last year with it's minor changes, though I liked riding past the Piers last year that we didn't do this time.

Completely forgot to take any pictures.

I took the family around and spotted some nice vintage bikes outside the corn exchange. I wish I had gone on my Raleigh Panasonic now. Picked up a nice del tongo top for a fiver from a shop in the fruit market.
Planning on doing the York one on 14th sept if today was anything to go by. The kids loved it.

Lmao @ the guy from Bobs Bikes, trying to convince me that the guy had built it from scratch, frame and everything and it was a one off custom affair and was older than the bike i was on, till i pointed out that it had disc tabs so that would date it around the 2000 area, and not 1997/1998 like the caldera i was astride lol


I enjoyed the day actually, wouldve been better to have us all as a group but like Ben said, the kiddies all rode at differing paces so it wouldnt be very easy to keep everyone together!
