Just to add to this thread.
I'd like to welcome two new Deputies on board the good ship NWA.
aka Richard will bring with him his extensive knowledge of the Lake District and surrounding area. His infamous bike bunker, filled with rare titanium and anodised exotica, has rarely been witnessed but I'm told it does exist.
Richard isn't afraid to grind his rare components into the Cumbrian mud though either.
aka Martin rides a different bike each week almost everywhere and anywhere, each selected from an undisclosed number of bikes. He also seems to have ridden virtually every trail within 100 miles of his house, probably on the same day for the hell of it knowing Martin, so we should be able to rely on him for some great routes too.
I'm looking forward to working with you!
