I will be in the future and running trails all over the NW - I've just got an AJP Pro4 in the stable and will be doing a lot of stuff with the TRF also. But for this ride I'm doing now I'm sticking to the roads... A and B roads but it will be tarmac stuff.

Hi there!

I'll be leaving Lancaster at around 10am so give a couple of hours to get to the cafe - more than welcome to meet in Lancaster Holiday Inn - I like to take my time and enjoy the view :) or will see you at the top at around midday.

There is a few more going from the XRV forum and MEM forum so should be a fun day out ... will see how frosty it gets over the week! :)
