The Retrobike National Event Series
With support from
Ladies and gentleman, 2011 promises to be an amazing year for Retrobike riding. Not only are your regional area groups in great shape with rides regularly being organised, but we’ve also put together a cracking National Series to entice you.
The National Series is the cream of the Retrobike rides squeezed into a six round series. We’ve done our very best to spread them around the United Kingdom, offer some of the very best trails and also make the series completely free to enter. So get your new diaries out, here is the Retrobike National Event Series with support from BikeFood Calendar for 2010/11:
Rd 2 - Thetford - Jan 23rd (Sunday)
Rd 1 - Cannock Turkey Twizzler - Feb 12th (Saturday). Postponed from 27th Dec.
Rd 3 - Forest of Dean - 14th May (Saturday)
Rd 4 - Drumlanrig - August 14th (Sunday)
Rd 5 - Mr. K's Day in the Peaks - Sept 10th (Saturday)
Rd 6 - Final Round (TBC) - Oct/Nov*[/b]
With special events at:
- The Hell of North Cotswolds (Sunday April 10th 2011)
- Mountain Mayhem (Weekend of June 17th-19th 2011)
The final round has been opened up for all regions to submit a bid for it, we’ll then post up their plans and all Retrobike members will then have the opportunity to vote on the event you wish to finish the series with.
With Retrobike rides proving ever more popular we are delighted to announce that www.mybikefood.com
have decided to support our series, they will be supplying us with complimentary drink supplements, water bottles and energy bars at all our national events.
The series is non-competitive in terms of riding, but to add to the interest we are putting together a National League Table with big points awarded for:-
-Wearing Retro (RB kit inclusive)
-Bike of The Ride
-Sense of Humour
-Regional Bonus for distance travelled
But what we give with one hand we’ll take with another and deduct points for:-
-Pikeing (a technical term for not turning up when you said you would)
-Riding a Modern Bike
-Not wearing a helmet
The league table will be updated and posted up as part of our monthly newsletter. Once you’ve attended a ride you automatically get entered into the league. At the end of the series the points winner will be awarded a special prize, there will be other spot prizes too. You’ll also receive a unique event sticker at each ride, can anyone collect all 7?
Please keep checking our calendar and monthly newsletter for details.
