Not sure when the next AMG meet is but suggestions on a postcard.

Bit windy out tonight but Sunday looks nice for a trundle

I'd be up for a trundle with my (modern) tandem, as long as there are not too many gates!

I have a brilliant route in mind, with plenty of bail out options plus, plenty of tea and cake stops...

Its a road route, nice and quiet but also part of those brown cycleway signs. Lots of loverly scenery too.

About 55 to 60 miles of mostly flat road. One busy roundabout to cross and a small town to navigate out of after tea and cake.

Honestly think 55-60 may be a bit far for me at the present time but if everyone is willing to wait for me I can tag along.
