Hi Steve.
The Sunday run is for the first stages of cycling, my son comes and he is 14. Provided you can ride the 40 mile circuit it would be a good introduction. We normally stop after 30 miles in a cafe. You could bring bike on back of car and leave it at the meating point. For your information we meet at 9:00 am in Heather in the Queens Head pub.
Hope to see you there sometime.
Nigel

Hi Steve. I see your post was 21st Nov so you are probably very much fitter now. I know Thurmaston well and am not too far from there myself.

If you ever want the company of a slow 54 year old woman let me know. I am hoping to do London to Paris in June or July but am a long way short of that so far.

hi steve, I am desperately looking for someone to kick me in to gear... and was chuff to see a reply from Mary. I've also signed up for the london to paris in june and was really aiming to be well in to it by now. But was laid low all over the winter - so I have a bike and have not really used it.
So Mary or Steve or anyone... if you fancy cycling with me in the evenings or at weekends I'd really appreciate it!
