The Retrobike National Event Series 2012
With support from Bikefood
Image

The 2011 Retrobike National Event Series was a resounding success, with rides regularly attracting over 40 like minded retro enthusiasts, having a great time on some quality trails.
2012 promises to be another 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 another cracking National Series to entice you.

The National Series is the cream of the Retrobike rides squeezed into a seven 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 Calendar for 2012:

With Retrobike rides proving ever more popular we are delighted to announce that once again www.mybikefood.com will be supporting our series. They will be supplying us with complimentary drink supplements and water bottles at all our national events.

The series is non-competitive in terms of riding, but to add to the interest points and special prizes will be awarded for:-

- Riding Retro
- Wearing Retro (RB kit inclusive)
- Bike of The Ride
- Skinwall Tyres
- Sense of Humour
- Regional Bonus for distance travelled
- Photography
- Bodging skills

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)
- Mechanicals
- Punctures
- Riding a Modern Bike

Helmets must be worn on Retrobike rides. No helmet - no ride.

Look out for ride announcements and please keep checking our calendar for more details.

Can't make a National Series ride...?

Have a look at the Regional Calendar or find your local area group sub forum to find another great Retrobike ride.
