    The Dent Rides

    So, with March upon us, I thought we had better start a thread discussing some rides

    The majority of the rides take place on the Saturday (as quite a few go home on the Sunday)

    Saturday

    Magnet/HTC - will be leading a ride, on roads less travelled and with an excellent fodder stop (Fran is noted for he foody choices) and the pace will be brisk

    2GSES (Chris) - will be leading a back roads ride, at a steady pace, exploring the little known and used lanes and white roads (no offroad, just grass in the middle) and I will probably back up Chris, on his ride (as most of you will be bored with my ride, after 2 years of doing it)

    Paul Nicholls - doing a longer ride, maybe up to the North Pennines and will include some offroad sections (discuss with him by PM) for those suitably able to complete. Paul's rides have been a blast in previous years

    Andrewgsadv - may lead a ride if we have a large number of people wanting organised rides and the other rides have been filled - Andrew's rides are generally off the beaten track and at decent pace

    Any other Ride leaders??

    Sunday

    HTC/Magnet - will probably be leading a ride


    Does anyone want anything else in particular?

    Suggestions welcome?

    Rides

    Hi Johnny,
    I will again offer a ride on the Saturday, sorry can't do Sunday as going to a bit of a do on Saturday night.
    My ride will be quite long one (if the weather is good) and as such pace will at times be brisk.
    Some GS friendly off road may be included.
    As for the route?? Still in the contemplation stage, but I'm thinking upto the Buddhist Temple in Eskdalemuir.

    Paul.

    Hi JB - I can confirm I will be running a ride on the Saturday - route very similar to last year with a different lunch stop. Waiting for Micky to get his act together to see if it needs to detour to the air ambulance base.

    With numbers attending we may need to recruit some more willing leaders.
    Life is short.
    And random.
    That's all you need to know...

    Think I'm tail-ending for HTC, but if the numbers require it I can lead a separate ride instead.

    PM the ride leader for any info, that's the way it works and they will answer any specifics

    Brisk means - maintaining a good pace, within the aspects of the law
