Spring Bank Ride

Monday 26'th May, some of us in the north west are doing a round robin ride, starting in Ingleton, on to Middleton-in-Teesdale, Hartside,Keswick, Bowness on Widermere (via Kirkstone pass) and back to Kirkby Lonsdale.

Ride is open to anyone who wants to tag along, but the maximum number for the group will be around 12, 5 already confirmed.

If anyone fancy's it let me know, it will be a good day out,

Re: Spring Bank Ride

Sounds like a pub crawl to me. My sticker arrived but I'm waiting for the GPX tail to make the UK transformation complete.

It may turn out to be,

And, as discussed, the tail will be wending it's way stateside as of Sat A M,.

Mine's STILL not come, may be I'm on the Royal Mail's black list Either that or my credit rating has dropped again,

There are a good number of hire firms for bikes, but, it is not cheap.....in fact, it's bloody costly,
