I'm up for it! May go out this Saturday around the Wirral, if that's any good for you?

I tend to do the Wirral Circular trail or the Cycle route 56, so around 35 miles, like this http://www.mapmyride.com/workout/455873565

I don't push myself just go for a leisurely ride averaging around 10-12mph.

I am flexible though if you want a shorter (or longer) distance.

It sounds like a great idea, nothing too strenuous with likeminded people who just want to get a bit of fresh air and exercise.
Good luck with it, and if it's something that keeps going I might consider joining you (I'd have to get a bike first though and regain my confidence riding one) smile
