View Full Version : new boy

Just thought I'd say hello.

Got back into biking a couple of years ago as a means to lose some weight and improve my fitness, and it seems to be working, mostly riding country lanes round burscough/dalton/newburgh/ashurst beacon etc.

Now I want to start using the bike for what it was intended, riding off road!

Not got a lot of off-road experience, so I expect to fall off. A lot.

Cheers, Steve

Welcome Ste.

Look out for the NCRs (non club rides) and next months Newbie ride.
We have a route nearby - a 14 miler (Parbold) we do on a Thursday night that you might enjoy

welcome mate - we are also doing the route that phil mentions next tuesday as part of the "skyride on tour". it is posted up in the members section, so you wont see it, but pm syko for an invite if youre interested.
