Hi Roberts owners and others who are also interested.

Seen on Facebook this morning, Geoff Roberts, brother of Chas is holding a get together and barbecue at his premises at Boreham Street East Sussex on 18 August 2019. He is hoping people take along some Roberts bikes with a prize for the best turned out.

I hope it is ok to post this here.

If I hear any more about it I will update on here.

Andy

The Roberts Cycles Open Day was a great success with 40+ owners and enthusiasts in attendance - many coming quite a distance. Geoff(Roberts) spoke with many about frame-building, frame-building courses and restorations.

There was a BBQ, refreshments, live music and of course all the friendly owners and enthusiasts - the oldest being 93 (nice to meet you Ron). We also had in attendance: Pip Jenkins, Glen Mitchell (Olympian) and Andy Palmer.

Here are a few images, so you can see what you missed on this sun-blessed day in East Sussex.

Looks great! Glad to hear it was a success, just a bit too far for me unfortunately.
