I just want to mention a website for rideouts in the Lincolnshire/Yorkshire area.
Lincs Rideouts and Tours
It's run by a friend of mine and is for people who want to ride for the pleasure of it.
I have posted videos etc of a couple of the rides I have done with them on this forum.
We ride anywhere really and ride most weekends when the weather is dry, (I melt if I get wet), most weekends
We planned and completed a 4 day jaunt to the French Alps earlier this year on a fly-ride basis (It saves all the hassle of the boring ride down there !) and it was excellent.
Take a look at the site.
Moderators - I hope I can mention this site as it is not for dedicated bike types. just ride outs
