I have only been riding bikes for a couple of years but in that time i have had the following.
Eight members from S Wales, the West Country etc. got together this morning. The initial idea was to join up with another group riding Salisbury Plain today. When I signed up I said that I wouldn't do any off-roading as my Vara has road tyres. However, things didn't go as expected...
We rode a...

Possibly a late morning start, with a 5 or 6 pm finish, North Beds, South East Northamptonshire or there abouts, sort of Rushden way.

As is says, Wed 29th Aug, (I know, tomorrow!), going to a few lanes in western Northamptonshire. They could have dried out a bit since Alpslapper and myself were there. (Or maybe not ;) .) Nick and I are leaving Leighton about 1 pm, so should be muddy by 2 :D .
Any one else, just pm me for my...
Well, alpslapper and myself ventured forth into the wilds of Northamptonshire today. It rained. Lots.
The bike looked clean, even polished, at first.
(Had 2 photos here, but I can only have 20 in the post, and these 2 were the least interesting, so they had to go!)
We missed the services...
Anyone up for a day out before the Ryedale rally on 7-8th July?

Last minute decision to trail ride today and keep my promise to Alpslapper to show him some of the finely maintained Essex green lanes. He did extremely well, despite having trail tyres on with as much grip as a slippy slidy thing sliding on another slippy slidy thing.
Here he is on his first...
