is this held every year??

I dont think i will be fit enough this year. only started riding road a few weeks back with the longest ride yesterday of circa 23miles and my legs were aching towards the end....

looks epic though, I even have the correct sort of bike tongue out

Paid up too....just as the weather gets a bit colder! Cold I can handle, just hope it doesn't rain. smile

My brother's probably doing it too, and then a colleague from his work, possibly 2...so 4 people could be doing it off the back of this thread. wink

Agreed certainly does, I've entered the ride but still haven't got a road bike, any recommendations to where to look for a retro racer? I'd really like a Raleigh Milk Race.
I've found the best place to look is in the classifieds sections of various bike forums, especially those websites dedicated to the older steed.

I wonder if we'll have our Pistonheads jerseys in time for this so we can look out for each other smile

Night ride, late October.

Unless they make some winter jackets, I think even if they are worn, they will be well covered smile

Am sure we can arrange to all meet up before hand.

Just registered smile

Going round to my dad's house tomorrow to try his late 60's race bike for size but as it is a track bike I suspect it wouldn't be too comfortable for 100 miles! Will stay open minded but I suspect I'll be using my modern bike.
