    Anyone fancy another Tarka Road Ride ??

    Right then....there appears to be several...well,maybe a couple of trail rides.

    Woody has got his Alternative Road Ride.

    A few years ago I lead a Road Ride on some of my favourite back roads and it seemed to be well received.
    In fact,I was overwhelmed by the turnout...30 plus ..and the congrats afterwards.


    Well....I`m offering to lead another Road Ride this year.....on the Saturday.

    It`ll be nearly all minor roads.

    There`ll be at least one scheduled 'proper stop' and a few photo stops too.

    It`s likely to consist of some of the last one I did,as the scenery is spectacular and the roads are superb.

    It won`t be as long as last time......probably a maximum of 100 - 120 miles.

    Please let me know here if you`re up for it.
    Bicycle riders.....Darwin's very own speed bumps.

    I would think the delay is due to them pondering what oil to use on the ride

    I rode on this ride last time it was run and thought it was a top notch, well led, easy paced ride which I will be coming and doing again if I can get
    It was well suited to the two up brigade also - an altogether leisurely ride though N Wales

    I have no conection with the ride leader other than he is a good mate and I have purchaced goods off him and I recon he is a rate good lad in general

    Can't stand the bloke - He eats mung beans, hates cats and drinks Lambrini...

    Still going on the ride...

    Having read some of your ride reports & almost being your neighbour I'd normally jump at this opportunity but I've recently bought a greenlaner & I'm doing the off-road madness on the Saturday.

    Another time hopefully.
