About me
Self-employed, I work from home but use my bike to visit customers.

Really enjoy riding the canal networks and in particular the Birmingham to Wolverhampton route.

Would like to join up for sociable rides, I've never yet done more than 25 miles in a day so not ready for anything too professional!

My main dislikes about cycling are inconsiderate drivers, drivers using mobiles (and of course giving you a mouthful if you dare challenge them) and the fear of dogs going for me on my bike!

Hi Richard

Sorry for the delay in replying. Been in the garden trying to sort some bikes out for a weekend ride

Here is my mobile number 07779693786 I'll be around and about during the day so not sure what time I'd get to the Six Ways area. Text me tomorrow and we'll be able to fix something up I reckon. thanks Phil

Hi Richard,

A few of us from my work are meeting this Sunday at 8.30am!, we are just begining to ride regularly so we're not that fit, we'll be doing about 50 miles or so holding 18ish mph.

One of the lads is from Erdington, Holly Dale or something.

I'm riding it fixed (about a70" gear), the rest are on road bikes.

We're meeting in Wellington Cersent in Fradley Park just outside lichfield which is where our office, you follow the road right around and you'll see Lorien Engineering Solutions on the left.

Wont worry if it all sounds a bit much, I just thought I'd offer as we were going out.

Glen

I'm up for riding bikes whenever you are! I'm free Mondays, weekends, and Fridays after 11am. (Useless student).
I've only got my fixie with me, so massive hills and off-road riding are basically out of the question, but anything else is cool!

(I like your name by the way...)
