:arrow: Distance: 30 - 40 miles depending on weather/ beer consumption.

:arrow: Starting point: PE28 4EZ - You will see which house it is when you arrive.

:arrow: Added extras: Bicycle jumble in the morning 8)

:arrow: Bike: Completely retro friendly

:arrow: Suncream: Mandatory :lol:

No Helmet No Ride. No Woman No Cry.
