    Anyone in the Hull area needed to be my cycling partner. I can do upto 50 miles but prefer short and regular. This may increase as I was seriously injured when knocked off my bike and lost a lot of fitness. I live in Hessle and can be quite flexible with time. I have road and mountain bikes so take your choice.

    Hi Salvo, welcome to Cycle Chat.
    Have you checked to see if you have a CTC group who does local rides?

    I have a cycling mate for regular rides and we enjoy our usual 30+ rides and we always find time to have a couple of pints somewhere along the way. I do go out cycling on my own at times but although still enjoyable it just seems tougher somehow.

    I'm currently living in Hull - although I'm fairly new to just cycling for the hell of it - slowly getting my fitness up. How old are ya? And what's your usual average speed?

    Cracking idea. I too would like a bit of company whilst building myself up to decent distances.

    Can a mod or Shaun answer this?
    Do we have another section or a sticky with following info?

    Name
    Type of cycling (road,mixture,offroad)
    Average speed
    Distance
    Starting point (i.e Marble Arch)
    Starting time(s)

    Anyone interested could then PM the member and arrange

    Yes, it's called the CC & Informal rides section.
    This is how the Sunday London Ride started.
    Someone wanted a ride partner, people answered the call and it grew from there.

    oh sorry I have not replied, my laptop was damaged and just managed to have it repaired now. I have joined skyrider since my last post but I am open to the idea of organising a local group and we can do this through skyrider and take advantage of all the facilities...any takers? Smoggie_87 you may well like this...you can get me on myownmail@tiscali.co.uk Rob
