Hi all,

It's about time we had another Rivington meet up, so how about Sunday October 27th at the lower barn ?

Hope to see as many as possible.

Regards,

Graham.

D1 Renovation; had it for 50 years and thought I ought to start :)

However, as I thought it might take a while, bought a B40 to ride.

I think you should sell it to me Graham...let me blow the cobwebs off it.

Just been out on the B175 for a 15ml run...looked threatening so just kept local...very nice though...all back lane stuff.

Hi All,
