On 10/10/06 my work colleague, David Ellis, and I cycled to the ruralnet|2006 conference from Rugby. The conference was held at Center Parcs, Sherwood Forest and delegates got a bike. You can see some of them here. The guy in the middle is Mohammed Dhalec, one of the ruralnet|uk trustees.
The keynote speaker at the conference was John Grimshaw, CEO of Sustrans. He also arrived on his bike.
The ride was about 70 miles.
