I have looked on here and cant seem to find a list of local rides listed anywhere.
If I am wrong (and it wont be the first or last time) please redirect this post!

I just thought it might be a good idea if you were away from home with a bike (like when I work away I sometimes take a bike with me) you could meet up with local guys and ride trails you might not find on your own.

Please add your own local groups to this list.


There is a local club here in NORTHAMPTON that runs most weekends and on wednesday nights.

Info is as per this link:-

Yea, I tried to start this off a month or so back. There was a little interest, but nowt happened.

If you look, theres a 'Local Rides' thread about a couple of months back.

I think this a great idea. Might need some flexibility on how you display the routes as some people will prefer google maps, others grid ref's, and others (me) leaving smarties round the trail for people to follow.

I'll move this over to the rides secion and we'll see the take up for a 'Sticky' thread in the future.

:D

Anyone else want this to happen?
