cool.

This murky weather may soften certain trails up too much, but i'm working hard to by-pass the problem bits.

We will see the house, nature reserve, mining relics and pleasant canal side paths as a minimum.

Tyres with decent knobliness and cantis(anti-clog) an advantage, not essential though bring what you like. mud guards a bonus too.

i'm hopefully gonna finalise a route this weekend, if my back is good :| got a horrible shooting pain trying to lift a large armchair on my own, doping up on ibuprofen now with dull pains running down to my right knee. Sciatic issues is something i'm used to now, couple of days rest will sort it. :)

great, that is a mate.

any bike you like, a fat bike thing might actually pay off, there is a certain bend on a bridal that is always 2" deep of water. even in summer :)

I can bring the fatbike if people want to try it that's not a problem, it could do with a fun day out, it's sat in bedroom all clean and unused for a few weeks.
