3 Tribes
START POINT AND TIME; Various
DISTANCE; 20-25miles (see area threads)
TERRAIN; Moorland Single and Doubletrack, techy descents and tough climbs


The first big National RetroBike Event of the summer is upon us.

Image

The North East, North West and Midlands Sections will be starting from 3 separate starting points before gathering on the shores of Ladybower Res'r and then continuing on around the eastern side of the valley en-masse. A pub lunch will follow before the groups split and return to the chosen start points.

Information regarding the three start points, distance and terrain expected are available in the NE, NW and Mids sections. Open to all and suitable for all abilities and fitness levels.

MIDLANDS HERE

NORTH WEST HERE

NORTH EAST & YORKS HERE

The North East Section rode this area last year and it was considered to be the best ride of the year. A really challenging route with some epic vistas guaranteed, usual good craic and banter with plenty of stops to rest those aging legs and bikes.

Last years ride report here

Lets make this a great start to the summer!! Roll up Roll up :wink:

Should be well worth the effort. Last years ride was amasing and like Si said one of the best rides all year.

Good man E_R. Great to have you on board. Just make sure that the Yorkies don't try to corrupt you by association.

We also have Sidewinder on the NWA all-star stunt team. Soooo that's...

North West ~ 6 : North East & Yorks ~ 10

We'll see what the true numbers are on the day shall we...?

I think Gil is bringing IanS and young Mark with him and the Barnsley lads who usually ride Dalby with us are coming along- maybe another 6-7 in total. Not a bad turnout really.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Ladybower.
