Default Ride out this afternoon/early evening?

There is a decent chance it might be fairly dry later on in the afternoon today.

I've spoken to Tomor and he knows some riding routes around the Basingstoke area, so anyone else up for it? Bordtea, you live there so hopefully you can make it .

I don't fancy going too far from home i.e London area just in case the weather is bad, as I am still inexperienced and am still getting used to the bike.

Everyone welcome.

Let me know if anyone is up for it, and pm me your mobile number if so, if I haven't already got it.

If the weather doesn't dry I'll still come out I reckon.

Thoughts/suggestions welcome.

It's forecast to stop raining at 3 here, but it certainly doesn't look like it at the moment!

Well I had a rideout with Tomor, and the weather was.... Wet grr.

Never mind, it's all good practice.

Thanks to Tomor for being patient with me as I'm not the fastest rider in the world.

Wasn't the best weather but im sure in nicer weather you may be a little more confident. Remember................ RELAX
Not bad thought considering you had only been out for around 3 hours on your own!

Relax is what I need to do. I also need to gain more confidence, but that will come with time hopefully.

And Dan, you need to come out next weekend. Just remember that you two, with your restricted SV's.... Will have to slow down for me lol.
