I'm back on the ball now and really keen to find some regular companionship for my little cycles around Leicestershire and possibly beyond in the wilderness for the near, and forseeable future. I am currently able to do about 50 miles fairly comfortably, about 13mph, on the road but obviously want to improve on this. My freinds can't seem to keep up or don't love cycling as much as i do. :( Also just started mountain biking this year as well so.....

Hey Cocoa Pops
Also looking to do some cycling around Leicestershire. I'm based in the city centre and generally head towards Rutland water at the weekends -a few decent climbs here and there but an overall an easy ride. I'm on par with your 50miles @ 13mph although I'm trying to up my game for mid-distance TT.

Hey Gabriel?
Great to hear from you!! I have been hiking all of last week so had a week off the cycling but want to get a couple in this coming week. Going out for a little ride today (20/30 miles) but would be up for a cycle on sat or sun? as going to cambridge for a few days. Apparently it's good training around Houghton on the Hill? Let me know and we can arrange something, if you're based in the city it shouldn't be too hard to meet up. I am based off Narborough Rd.

Cheers

Siu

Yeah, I don't think the "contact member" messaging/email thing works, as I've not received your email. Try sending me something directly to: Rgabrielczyk@googlemail.com and I'll get back to you with a time/location/route for Sunday.

Ben, if you still want to go for a cycle on Sunday, shoot me an email (address is in an earlier post) as I'm not on Facebook, and we'll sort something out. Ta.

Siu- make sure you're free to come out for a cycle the next weekend we're expecting heavy rain! :P
