Fair enough, maybe some other time.
Im think we come back from holiday on the 13th so that weekends crap for me anyhow.
Only really suggested elan valley cos its a place i wanna do, but i need to get some miles under my belt cos i only do small rides so not sure how my ageing body will stand up to any distance.
New handlebar conversion has helped loads though, hence the desire to test it over distance.

No, we're planning to go to the Brackley thing, via Ma Larkin's.

Well, are you planning to do the Air Ambulance ride? That would be a gentle introduction to group riding, with plenty of stops.

Well, we're meeting SVStorm and IrishRob in Rugby at 9.30 for a run down to Ma Larkins near Chipping Norton before going onto Brackley. You could come with us as far as Ma Larkins then, after a cuppa, head for home.
