Just wanted to share, had a fantastic ride today, me and puddleglum signed up for one of the rides organised by our local council, guided by members of Ribble Valley Cycle Club, which including getting to the start point and back turned out to be a 55 miler in glorious sunshine. Can't remember exactly where we went, but wherever it was, it was rather hilly. Route included Longridge, Chipping, BEACON FELL (and I made it to the top without stopping!!!!! ), Calder Vale, some reservoirs near somewhere, Scorton, Elswick, Pilling, Garstang and various other places I can't remember... It was really good fun (have slight case of sunburn tho, despite creaming myself quite happily ), although my legs are definitely tired now. I was fine on my mtb, but most people, especially those from the club were on roadbikes, and I think I have been bitten by the roadbike bug - I really want one now (and as the optimum number of bikes is n+1, I'm clearly underequipped on the bikefront anyway ). Can someone please send me a winning lottery ticket or a cheque made out in my name please???
