As a newcomer to the site(relatively) and having looked down the Rides section ,it appears that there isn't a North West section although I know that there are a number of members in the area .Would anyone be interested in a ride preferably somewhere sociable(Llandegla springs to mind) where we can meet up have a ride and a coffee/bacon bap etc and generally put faces to names ?

Thats Wales!

I'm North East but would be up for a ride in the Lakes. Not too far from Liverpool. I'm sure some off the other NE and Yorks group would be up for it as well as the more Southern Members of MacRetro.

Find a spot, sort a date and start a thread and the will come!

The reason for suggesting Llandegla was purely that its at most 1 hr from the furthest point in the NW catchment area ie Manchester Liverpool etc ,as for the start a thread ,I thought thats what I've done :lol: :lol: :lol: but if the concensus is the Lakes then so be it :wink:

Yep up for that, North Wales, Lakes or even Trough of Bowland. Some great rides around here. Give me a shout if need help organising anything.

Its a big area the North West. I kind of regard Manchester as more Derbyshire :wink:

There is the Trough of bowland which is in the forest of Bowland albeit with few trees to qualify it as a forest - You have Gisburn; Rivington near Botlon, then into the lakes & Yorks dales.

I am too unreliable/unfit to set up any rides and cant find any 8 speed Gripshifts.
