    Hiya. The 'slow rides for unfit people' group are visiting Shropshire in June. We have a ride planned starting in Church Stretton on Sunday 27th. I don't know if you fall into the slow/unfit category or if this is local for you but you'd be more than welcome to join us.

    Hiya, I'm Gaz of the biking group the HOMBRES, (hungover mountain bikers recreational entertainment society) we ride as a group about once a month and we are of a wide range of abilities. Our group rides are more a social thing, usually at trail centres, but theres no pressure on anyone to be good, just enjoy the day. The bulk of us are based in Wolverhampton and outlying bits of the West Mids, and you are welcome to join us any time. The best way is via facebook, the link is at on my signature on here

    another Shropshire boy here.

    Can recommend cycling with Ben, as he always does a comedy crash! :lol:

    Haven't done any comedy crashes for a bit, but do seem to ride out of control alot.

    How about Llandegla on Wednesday night? or are you turning into a roadie?

    What new bike are you going to get Haz?
  • tlw1tlw1 Posts: 18,921
    Up for Llandegla on Wednesday.

    The orange is in need of a service so it will be the SS - so bear with me on the downhills!

    Turning into a roadie.......... suppose I deserve that!
  • tlw1tlw1 Posts: 18,921
    or could be on the orange if anyone is able to fir brake pads quickly - because if I tried we would need lights! :oops:
