When Totally Fixed was organising forum rides I did a few rides in the Rutland area, a very nice area to ride in.
Enjoy , shame you won’t be able to go higher. Some lovely mountain views and walking round there.Off to Llanberis shortly for a 'beginners walking weekend'. Storm Dennis coming in tomorrow so organisers are doing low level walking (quite rightly) or if you chicken out, you can go to the pub. Got all my wet gear with me. Should be fun once back in the pub.
Just checked the location out and we are right next to a small river that caused all the flooding in recent years. The new flood improvements were completed in Autumn. Better hope they hold up as my car will be floating off and I won't be happy.
Mrs F wan't impressed when I said 'can I take my bike'
1969 vintage, mine; 998cc, twin SU, competition cam... Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!I had 2 Minis in the past. A 1965 850 and a 1970 1000. Both were great little cars. The main problem that I had was forgetting about checking the battery electrolyte levels as they were tucked away in the boot .
I also had an Austin Metro HLS with a 1300 A+series engine which kept using up alternators. Looking back I would prefer a mini .
