Hi Matt
Sorry for not repling sooner. That would be cool. There are some great roads out there in wales it would be great to meet somewhere if you fancy a rideout. (that goes for anyone else too). Just so you know im not a fast rider, wife and kids at home if you know what i mean, but if your up for a chilled out ride sometime just let me know. Rich

I'll be up for a ride out as well.

I'm the same - a wife and kids at home & I also spend Mon-Fri on the commute (Cross Hands to Cardiff - give me massive wave if you see me).

yes, we'll get this sorted. Lets get the rally out of the way first!

Where's cross hands?

Matt (and no, I dont want to commit hara kiri either. Got a son and another on the way! so I reckon we can have a nice ride. I have a friend with a trike who wants to come along too, so no silly speeds from that lump!)

Sounds like a good route to me, how are people for saturdays? I am in Church till 12.30 on a sunday morning, and then do archery in the afternoons. I could miss archery and do an afternoon ride, but I have missed it for weeks, so need to get a couple in ready for a comp coming up!
