Mainly fairly local stuff in/around Redcar & Cleveland and North Yorks, been keeping track of my rides with the GPS and using gpsies.com to help create routes.
Mainly road based stuff as it's easier to plan, you never know what off-road is like till you're actually there.

1) I'm getting old, my memory fails me frequently...
2) I forgot where I put the maps...

Hey guys. I'm putting on a ride around some local woods on saturday 1st October. Already several RBers confirmed. If you would like to pop along give me a shout. There are no cafes, pubs or facilities nearby so make sure you bring everything you need for a big day out. I'll be taking the yellow bus up there so enough to make a brew and some bacon sarnies, but come ready to look after yourselves.

Si

Not sure yet. Depends on the weather and what Jonsey has in mind. Probably one of the usual spots.
