yep! and the A68 and.... well any other N.E. Road you care to mention this year, at least.....

The hills are still there! and more like "Jordans Tits" than a Witches. lol.

Take care of yourself in the U.S. Are you there for the duration or heading back to good old Geordy land any time soon?

Still coming out of the woodwork, I'm in Milton Keynes, loads of varied rides 5-10 minutes and your out onto undulating country roads, 15-20 minutes into the pine forest with loads of challenging mountain bike routes, and to cap it all hundreds of miles of red-way ( off road ) cycle paths throughout the city, great for commuting social or family rides, a cyclists paradise.

Hi Andy

I have just registered, living just to the east of London. I am mainly a touring cyclist but do some fairly serious road work too.

I tour in both the UK and europe, how about you?

Hi there! I am in Suffolk...only been here about 6 months but...I love it! (Originally from California)

Hi all, I'm new to the forum, live in Fife, Scotland and am into lightweight camping/touring mostly in the hotter parts of France. This because I'm very,very old and have very dodgy knees. Regards, George.

littleriderdave 01-07-05 12:39 PM

cycle sarah, which bit of Suffolk? Ipswich, Colchester, Bury?

stokell 01-11-05 03:00 PM

Born in Scarborough, Yorkshire, now living in Toronto. Strange thing: I work in Scarborough, Ontario. That's okay, Toronto used to be called York.

Cyclesarah 01-12-05 08:14 AM

Hi there! We are in Lakenheath...so just about 20 mins or so from Bury. Lovely riding out here so far! Where abouts are you?

cjfulham 01-21-05 11:09 AM

Not sure I count. I live in London on Parson's Green, but I'm from Texas. Just moved here in September, so I get lost pretty regularly. Any advice as to group rides in and around town would be greatly appreciated. Should be said that my bike was stolen a couple of weeks ago and I won't be back on two wheels until March or so, but I'll be looking for rides then.

Cheers,

CJ
