This venue has been especially chosen to blow away those winter cobwebs and allow riders of all abilities and fitness levels to enjoy some fantastic all weather trails. The retrobike banter is friendly and infectious, so if you're planning on making this your first ever retro bike ride, we guarantee that it will be the first of many.

Here’s a few pictures of the Gisburn trails to wet your appetites:

Obviously those pictures show people riding modern tosh, but fear not you can bring your old school masterpiece and ride it with pride.

There will be a prizes for the bike which everyone votes 'retrobike of the day' as well as a few other surprises!

Everyone from all areas is welcome.

So what say you!

Can't see a reason not to be there.... if only to moan about manicured trail centres and the 'types' they attract! 8)

Was planning to bring mrs ER but she is a bit apprehensive about this red run. How technical is it? She will be on a retro-ish full susser and she copes with Llandegla blue run easily.
