I'm thinking of trying the Kielder 100 later in the year and want to get out for some good rides before spring. Does anyone fancy meeting up for some no faff, longish, not too slow evening or weekend rides? I'm based in Manchester but would travel to Llandegla for an evening ride no problem as long as it was a decent session.
