We should definitely have a southern counties hook up...

Folkie: beautiful day here today, was itching to get out for a ride but wife had other ideas. We're just outside the town, a few hundred yards from the sea, stop by any time for a cuppa.

Dodders: cool! Want 'em myself but still debating whether to go for Firestones or Avons. I like both, but there's definite price advantage to the Avons

Oh yes, I see you on the map now. Maybe sootysweep would be in too?

Perhaps we could all meet up at Newlands Corner, or maybe Loomies?

Loomies is a nice little run from here. Just just got to avoid being taken out by a Sports bike cornering on the wrong side of the road on the way there!

Will be in touch.

Hi
I'm in London Wembley but I'm going to move to Derby soon.
I will bring my whole workshop with me too.

Yep - but I need to get out and ride to a specific destination, I can't just mooch around like I used to. Loomies gives me the opportunity to plan ahead and put some miles in. I've yet to find a decent café stop that's a good distance from here - though that could be a good 'project' for the Summer.

We were going to try The Lookout at Swinley Forrest. Or the Departure Lounge again? Newlands Corner? The Ogri Café?
