I suppose I prefer road cycling to off road, although it all depends on my mood.

Mostly I prefer riding my road bike though, find MTBs heavy and bulky

Avg around 17-18mph in a 14 mile bike ride.

Wow, well done Phil, the thought of losing a bit of weight has motivated me, could do with dropping a stone, hell get real two stone lol.

I'm gonna get myself out today and not let any excuses get in the way for a change.

Hi People,
Right, who has got a bike and wants to lose weight/build stamina? Am thinking seacombe ferry to new brighton and back just for exercise and meet WIKI friends. (NOT A RACE!!!!!!).Lets say every Friday at the ferry 6.30pm just for a ride. I am up for that BUT GOT TO WORK AWAY IN EDINBURGH FOR 3 WEEKS FROM TOMORROW(wednesday)so maybe someone can carry this on from friday or give me your names and in 3 weeks we can do it, bring the kids and bikes. all welcome just cycle and ride, free exercise and fun and meet.
Who is up for it????
PS. if you smoke like i do get ur last smoke in at the ferry till u get back to seacombe (Just a thought, want to pack in aswell and get fresh air into my lungs)
Mike N Charlie, who is up for that????

Friday at that time is a no no for me as I may still be in work.

Am free weekends but will have a 9 mile ride to Seacome via the coast then do the ride twice then ride back.

I will be riding from Parkgate round the coast to Eastham on Saturday morning (dependent on weather) if of any help I will log down the mileage of the route to help Wikiwirral people to gauge a ride.
