    Done, I was thinking of a Saturday anyways as people wanted to join the last one but had issues with Sunday public transport.

    Have you got a route in mind? Could be tempted, just the idea of a 75 mile drive each way that may get in the way :(

    You have to make sure the circuit involves a pub.

    Or you'll need to supply the food halfway 'round; and it'll need to be cooked :wink:

    Can you put me down as a maybe please as whilst 30 miles is okay for me, I'm not fit enough to do a 40 mile ride (yet). I would like to see a route before I commit.

    The date and time (10 or 11) is fine by me...and I have a pass out from her in charge.

    Will do mate, Im still rubbish on hills carrying my weight so its going to be pretty much flat, the route I have in mind is a little under 35 miles and we will go as fast as the slowest rider so no worries there mate.

    Sounds good to me - bear in mind my pb is 35 miles at an average of 12mph so 35-40 should be OK 8)
