I quite often go for shortish (~2 hours) local rides on the weekends starting out from Warrington. In the absence of anyone proposing something more structured / longer I'm happy to post up a start time and location when I next go out in case anyone who is local wants to accompany me. However, I must be honest up front and say I'm a speed limits kind of guy and I'm not an aggressive rider so I imagine it wouldn't be for everyone (though I guess there's nothing stopping people blasting off down the road and then waiting for the rest of us to catch up).

A couple of examples of rides might be:
  • Cat and Fiddle
  • Horseshoe Pass
  • I also have some local routes on Cheshire back roads
As my son is just learning to ride I could also post up some '125 friendly' rides following the same routes but taking it easy so the smaller bikes can keep up.

I have never organised rides before but if no-one else is organising them, and there is an interest, then I'm willing to give it a go. If it works out I might be persuaded to plan in something a bit longer from time to time.

That sounds good solo, any time the missus lets me out I'd be up for it! I'm close-by to those roads myself and more than happy to come along on 125 friendly routes :thumb:. Just gotta make sure I earn some brownie points with the missus :mrgreen:

I like the idea of riding within the speed limits and not being aggressive - makes riding much more relaxing.

Only snag is I work most weekends - certainly for the whole of September I'm booked solid at weekends :(

I guess a run on a week-night in the evening is not out of the question, say a Friday? I'll have a think about that too.

Would love to; sounds like a great ride. Unfortunately it's a working day so much as I would prefer to be out with you I won't be able to make it. :cry:
