Well its that time of year again....
So lets have your ideas for the Regional rides in 2013.

Where do you want to ride and where do you want to revisit....
I'm looking for ideas for the monthly regional rides as chrisv40, marc two tone and myself be sorting the local rides.

If you have a ride or an area that you thing deserves to be to be on the calender then lets hear about it.

cheers kaya

The Nawton loop ride I did in August (reccied anyway) would probably make a nice ride , I would normally say it'd be best in summer as it's drier but it pissed it down all year so hey ho. I've got it on .gpx if anyone wants to look at it on a map.

The Nawton loop get my vote by the way.

The Ravenscar ride would be good for early in the year, as its on well surfaced tracks.
But would also be good to try some where new :wink:

As for the winter training, I prefer the healthy option CAKE :lol:

Something up the east coast would be nice........

Withernsea, Hornsea etc.

A bit flat but a coast ride would give some nice views and the obvious Fish and Chip food stops............

I'm going to work on something round my way, Doncaster and Rotherham area. Hopefully that will bear some fruit.

:-)

Would be interested in something around that area as I've not ridden around there.

any of your old stomping grounds worth a try with Mr Lee?

ill try and get s loop together around castle howard.
