    What no Fords ride???

    Is there no Fords ride this year.

    Me and Syco are coming over on Saturday and were thinking that we would do the fords ride, but I can't see one

    We'd do one of the off road rides but they are full and not welcome to day trippers

    So come on, is there a ride out or am I gonna have to take in some of the local lanes instead

    Yo! Flip,

    We're doing one of the off road rides this year, and I think I saw a post by Fanum saying he was doing either an off road or Tarka's ride 'not quite sure which'

    So sorry to those who were hoping to get their wheels wet, but I've wanted to do on of the off road rides for a couple of years now, but not being yer skilled off roadie type like yersel 'Flip' I had to wait till an easy one was on the cards .

    I will though be resuming duties and organising a ride of sorts 'wet & twisty' for the EM4 bash in September.

    i'm afraid I'm unable to make llangolly this year but there's a fair chance I can dig out the route I've done for previous year's fords runs if someone fancies picking it up and running with it.......it would be a shame not to, 'cos Corwen is a classic and always good for 'photo opportunities'

    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    Fords

    Its been pretty dry for a bit up here, so ford water levels should be lowish prior to this band of rain coming in. So I think they might be ok this year.

    Corwen is probably going to be the worst of them.
    So anyone actually up for a ford ride apart toad and flipfly?
    As i am out for only the day, I might be pursuaded to risk a drinking again..
