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?
Whereabouts & what time?

Set off from east ravendale either around 9 or 1ish, depending on what the wife has in store! When could you make it? Do you know the area? I've got a decent 10 miles but need to make it a bit longer

Just got back in from a recce ride. Andy sent me a scan of his os map and we did a 12 miler based on that. It was pretty muddy and quite a slog to be honest but a decent ride which could be extended easily. Or i was thinking we could do that in the morning then back to my mum's for a bacon buttie then back out for another 10 ish miles in the afternoon? Or loop the 2 together in one?

Ahh, good to see you back, glad you didn't get lost or owt!

Sounds like plenty of options, I've not fully explored all the bridleways marked on the map.

Maybe get together and work out a route that has bail outs if needed, but one that is of sufficient distance & fun to entice those who think Lincolnshire is flat & boring ;)
