    Looking for a cycling comanion to encourage me to get out during the week for a few day or half day scenic rides. Good for 35 to 60 mile runs at a decent touring pace with stops for lunch etc. Redundent 55 yr old bored with same local runs. Based Prestwich nr Manchester. Have car to throw bike in for further afield. Let me know.

    Have you thought about getting involved with one of the local clubs? Loads in the Manchester area and the experts will know all the lanes.

    Hi Jim, I work all week so am unavailable then :wacko:. Your local CTC branch could well have midweek rides - maybe.

    Would this ride be any good for you? Do you like hills?

    Same here - working, although a weekend meet like above might be useful.... Clubs are your best bet, certainly CTC for weekdays. Also check out any sportive/audax web sites - I know of weekly wednesday runs going from Marple (nr Stockport) into the Peak District run by one of the CTC clubs.

    Resurrecting an old thread here, but if you're still looking for a training partner mid weeks, I'm free from 2pm Mon - Wed. (As soon as the ice goes).
