So pending a date, shall we say this is achievable Flanders? Venue sounds good, levels of interest sound good. So just need a date (no panic with this) and some bikes I guess. Might even buy myself a retro road bike just for this.
Not Flanders - Overend!!! There's more than one (in)famous Ned.
Even if I did once have ginger hair, ginger moustache and thick rimmed glasses.
I would be looking for April/May time next year once the snow has cleared and the frosts have finished up North.
I can check with a convenient cafe (which is a farm shop cafe we visit regularly with a fair amount of parking but not very big inside unless they relocate the cafe area which they're talking about doing) if it will be OK to park etc. for a day. This is roughly between Womersley and Pollington if you're looking at a map. If the weather's good there's plenty of space outside to eat, drink and chat. Bring your own chairs!
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
