Had a ride at Dalby with JV, Tim, Gil and Mark on Friday and only tickled the fringe of the woods. It was great.

Hope all of you had a great time. Would have loved to of been there, but a works function and the wifes hair appointment put paid to that :roll:

Look forward to seeing some pics :D

Ditto that! As a Retromeet virgin, I had a fantastic time (although somewhat short-lived!) and met some great folks! Got to get myself to the Peaks Meet now!

Highlights of the Saturday:

1) Ed's (Orange71) huge stack at the bottom of the 2nd timed downhill
2) Darren's (Bibby) full-on retro get-up
3) General helpfulness of everyone mucking in & lending tools for all manner of mechanical issues
4) The weather! Scorchio! :lol:

Bike is clean and refettled. Rider is clean but might take a bit longer to fix :lol:

Thanks to everyone for the organisation and cracking riding and great to see some proper retro jewellery getting a thrash.

Now if only someone could instruct me in the art of riding in an upright position...... I seemed to spend an inordinate time horizontal :lol:

See you next time!

Anyone get any pics? Was a good day out :D

I enjoyed putting it in the big ring and opening it up on the road on the way back.
