I’m getting out on a decent ride (200 - 400 miles) every two or three weeks. Gotta take the Sporty in for its MOT on Monday.

About to set off on a favourite ride, Liverpool via Lytham, Preston, Southport, Ainsdale sand hills & open night at clubhouse for non members. About 100 miles though I may do a few errands before going

That is a decent ride! I rarely get over 150 in a day out.. I'm sure she'll sail through!
