Just an idea for our October midlands ride , how about Long Mynd on Sunday October 14th? Guiding all sorted all you have to do is turn up!!! A venue that's been talked about us visiting but yet to fruit.

Who's in?

Actually might be interested in this, although will have to check calendar. Slightly worried about my fitness level though - had tendonitus all summer so not got any riding in; did my first half hour on the trainer yesteday.

What sort of distance / timings are we talking? (Zaskar is itching for a proper outing :) )

Also - and just out of interest - what sort of kit do you guys tend to carry on these long rides? I've always just had a saddle bag packed with tools (chain tool, allen keys, spare links, spare inner tube + repair kit, cable ties, etc) a pump and a bottle of water. Most of the pics I seem to see everyone has rucksacks though. Am I stuck in retro-kit land as well as retro-bike land?

That's sounds fine ,bring also some food or snacks and you can't go wrong and maybe some warm clothing if weather dictates 8)
