Hi,

First post to the forums, Just picked cycling back up after many years away from cycling :eek:

Thought i would give a brief Intro. and a big HELLO :biggrin:

Have been managing to get 100 Miles + in each week since I started back up about 12 weeks ago, Including usually a 50 - 60 Miler on the weekend generally venturing into the peak district, and have a funny story about setting out on my first "long route" not quite sure where we were going and riding up this road thinking ek this is a bit steep to eventually reaching the top to read the sign "Holme Moss" although have since been informed we took the easy route from the resevoir side! :cry: there was nothing easy about it!!

Some friends and me are doing the Manchester to Blackpool ride next Sunday, is anyone on here doing that ride?

Thanks

Scott

Hi both,

Thanks

Dale,

It will be my first time so really looking forward to it, although doing it with some more experienced riders who all did LEJOG last year! so not looking forward to trying to keep up with them! :biggrin:
