Hi,

I'm looking for riding buddies in the Preston/Ormskirk/Southport triangle. Yes I know it's flatter than a flat thing round here, but someone besides myself must ride a bike!!!

As to myself; the wife says I'm the original grumpy old man. Been there, done that etc.
If it involves bikes or hills I've had a go at it. Now ride nearly every Saturday for 4/5/6 hours. Pure XC, not a jumper, a downhill king, an all mountain god, trail centre lover or anything resembling technical brilliance. Just riding my bike in Lakes/Dales/Pennines.

Any one out there want to ride?

    rivington aint to far from preston and it isn't flat,,..

    we are up there most saturdays the odd sunday if you wanted a guide although sundays are usually road trip day to wales lakes ect....
  • Thanks for that. I know Rivi quite well - was born at the foot of the Pike. Seems like I've spent most of my life moving over those hills.

  • Try Stonyhurst College Golf course, that always used to be a bit of a laugh!!! (after hours is obviously best!!!)
  • There are 4 of us from the Wigan / Billinge / St Helens area who tend to go out either sats or suns for 2/3 hours - and there are plenty routes around here within an hours drive. Rivvy the obvious one but also Rochdale / Saddlworth area, Gisburn , Worsthorne and even the Peaks District and llandelga are less than an hour away.
