    If you look on your council website they might be able to help. Some will put on cycle training for groups.

    And you've got God on your side. He's much more powerful than the council, even.

    Lots of stuff round Temple Newsam, too, postman. You can link it in with routes going SE out of Leeds and towards Fairbairn Ings. Lots of scenery and birdlife, but small children probably need to be on tagalongs or in trailers because of the water.

    Hi Postman, I know how it feels when you organise a run and only you turns up! On the back of something you said on this forum last year about doing some cycle rides I started a group at my church last October and we have rides twice a month, with about 7-10 people on most rides. There has only been one ride so far where I was the only one there - but I still went ahead and did the ride! Did you advertise it in the church newsletter?
     
  8. Mr Postman, the offer of tea and biscuits and a ride on some interesting bikes as a destination for your rides is still there if you're interested. There are a couple of local pubs which do acceptable lunches too.
