hi all. i have been snowed under this month doing tax returns but i want to organise a retroride towards the end of february. i can only do sundays and as it is my ride, sunday it shall be! i am thinking 21st or 28th.

my area of the country isnt the best but i am thinking of planning 2 possible rides.

1. if plenty of people turn up we will ride the brigg/barnetby/kirmington area

or broughton/scunthorpe if chris or marcus could make the scunthorpe bit interesting.

2. if only a few can make it we can meet at my parents and ride part of the wolds - i'll need help with this as i only know 1 10lmiler but it is a nice ride.

what do people want out of the ride? if it is brigg/scunthorpe are it is inevitable that there will be some road miles and possibly the odd public footpath

shall i try and find a landlord who will let us park in their pub on the promise of a post ride pint?

my problem is that in my area of the worls there are a lot of footpaths, quite a few bridleways but they never seem to go anywhere so a bit of road is going to be needed somewhere.

also its not very hilly!

guys, its over to you

No pun intended :wink:

Either date should be fine. Just commit to one and I'll clear it with the Guvn'r my end!

Park at your parents sounds fine, and lets hit some footpaths and bridleway's :lol:

Any riding would be good as I am sooo unfit at the mo.

Hey, the Vectra is mine now so I can make it 'drum WITH bass' 8)

Although, having said that, its handy being able to get a bike it the back without having to take the wheels out.....

bass

or bikes


bass

You need a van in your life.

I'm off for a recce ride on sunday trying to extend the route i know. There's plenty of bridleways around there looking at the map but i don't know how good a route i can make. The current one i've done with my dad a few times is only 10 miles.

Is anyone around this sunday for a ride?
