Well done to Ciaran Johnson for incorporating a ‘Steel Baroudeurs” ride in to his lead for AMICI SFA on Saturday 1stJune.
Eight riders turned out including three from groups other than Amici. The ages of the bike ranged from Andy Mackays newly aquired late ‘40s, early ‘50s Holdsworth (soon to be the subject of a restoration), through to Rick Gambling’s modern steel steed with Di2.
The weather could not have been better for riding an old steel classic with shiny spokes! The sun was out, the temperature was hot and the bikes glistened!
To take into account the abilities of riders from differing groups (and the abilities of the older bikes) Ciaran had kept the route down to 40miles with minimal climbing and we made our way from Marden to our coffee stop at Suzy’s Kitchen in Tenterden.
All in all a great day out and the type of classic ride which we hope to do more of during the summer months.
If you want to be kept informed of any steel rides which we do in the future you can get in touch with me on 07736 518935 or email@example.com
