Important Stuff: Hotwire's Feed
 
Hey folks, the Retro Rides forum has been a sanctuary for us all during the past few months and it's great to see that the conversations and build threads continue - keep up the good work!
 
Despite the recent news that The Weekender can no longer take place this year, our focus now shifts to how we can bring the Retro Rides community together for the remaining months of this year as well as looking ahead into 2021. 
 
The good news is that your Retro Rides Roundup will now appear fortnightly into your inbox and we are working on a thread authoring tool that should make mobile contribution easier. 

See you in two weeks!
