I'm quite tempted by this ride as I lived in Poynton as a child...and for the company of course
I would be riding modern though (on my new bike
) and I'm not sure thats acceptable from the comments on the ride thread
I might have to get special dispensation
You didn't go to Poynton High School by any chance did you?
Modern bikes will be more than welcome if everything retro is in pieces but you'll have to carry the snow shovel as a penalty...
I went to Poynton Primary until I was 10, then we moved to the north of Scotland so I kind of lost touch with that world. My Grandparents all lived in Stockport whilst alive so it's always nice to go back.
We used to walk a lot as a family so I have vauge memories of that whole area being fantastic (and as a kid the Cat and Fiddle always seemed really mysterious and bleak).
It's not so much the bikes being in pieces, more me if I ride them
