Hi all. I'm looking for riding buddies in/around the north yorks area. My usual riding buddy has headed of to Canada for a year and the rest are all fair weather riders. I've been biking for a few years (on and off) and while I'm reasonably ok on the downhills, I'm not great at climbs so looking for patient people :)

Anyone want to meet up?
