    My Introduction

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Daniel and I'm a bike mechanic who also loves to ride the bikes I build. I'm based in St Helens and would love to meet some like minded people to show me the best places to ride in the St Helens area.
    My bike is a custom NS frame hardtail bike that I call black lightning, in which I built myself. Hopefully I'll be able to meet up with some of you guys for a good day of shredding trails.

    Cheers guys.

    Welcome!

    There are evening rides in and around St Helens almost every Tuesday and Thursday night that you're very welcome to join (will just need good quality lights) and periodically there will be weekend rides open to everyone before they become a full member.

    There is plenty of good riding in St Helens if you know where to look / have someone to show you.

    Where about in St Helens are you?

    Hope to see you on a ride soon.

    Peter

    Welcome pal, whatever you do don`t ride with @Glenn c as he will utilise all your mechanics ability regularly during the ride, as his bikes are usually always upside down,
    Eat, sleep, ride, repeat

    I lived in Sutton Manor until late last year but up in Thatto now.

    We ride a lot around that area on a Thursday night. There are three built trails at Dream and then the path through Griffin Woods.

    If you go over to Clock Face country park there are another few trails.

    Once you get over to Bold and Colliers Moss there are lots and lots of trails of all different types.

    You're very welcome to join any Thursday night ride (you'll need lights) or if you want to drop me a PM I can find a slot for day light guided tour.

    Are you on Strava? I can point you to a few rides on there that will give you an idea.

    Welcome to the club Daniel
    When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments. Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man. And (unlike subsequent inventions for man's convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became. Here, for once, was a product of man's brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others. Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle. ~ Elizabeth West
