I go on quite a few organised rides that don't require helmets, maybe I'm not insured :lol:

What a sad state of affairs we're in in this country :(

Hi

As a very new newbie, my road riding has only just been restarted after getting a '75 Peugeot 5-speeder (see My 'New' Peugeot in Readers Road Bikes section) whose rides are limited to an hour or so around the lanes near Droitwich after the kids have gone to bed this ride sounds great, but unfortunately I'm on holiday that week.

I''l keep an keen eye out for any similar rides in the future as I'm a bit fed up of riding on my own!

Enjoy!

As I probably ride along Ridge Lane two or three times a week and people seem to be travelling from far and wide I'd better put my name down.
I think it's a school holiday week so as long as my wife doesn't decide we're doing something else then I'll be there.

Been sliding over more to the road side lately

2hrs on the train to Atherton, so easily made. Alan Carbonio or Raleigh Road Ace.

Best get some miles in - about 50 you say?
