    Thanks, guys. I enjoyed it although I'm in pain now (really sore hip and elbow) after the fall. Hope to see you soon.

      Hi Hannah, I will meet you at to the Liverpool station, so we can get the cheaper groom ticket together. See you!

    I know some of you are travelling by train from London. If you buy tickets together you'll get a discount. I think even just for 2 people. Post here messages if you'd like to meet up with others at the station.

    Sorry, had to cancel. Just pulled my calf muscle really badly playing tennis. Can hardly stand ATM.

  • Helena P.

    Hello, if you need to get in touch with me tomorrow my phone number is 07969515221. I still seem to suffer some muscle inflammation so we'll go at leisure speed tomorrow. There will be showers during the afternoon so don't forget your rain coats.

    Will I be able to keep up with you guys?

    June 23, 2014

    • Helena P.

      Yes, you will be fine. I see myself walking up the hills to enjoy the views ;-)

    How would you rate the pace/speed of this group and do you make stops? Is the route hilly and what type of bike would be most suitable?

    June 23, 2014

    • Helena P.

      Hi, the route is not too hilly but there are hills, but the you get rewarded by a ride downhill ;-). It is all on the road so any bike is good, road or hybrid. Mountain bike would slow you down so it depends on your fitness.

    • Helena P.

      As Simon mentions above, we will adjust the speed as needed. To tell the true I might be a bit slow myself as I feel I have some kind of injury from overuse.

      1 · June 23, 2014

  • Simon B.

    We are a social cycling group so travel at a speed which suits all of those on the ride, as for the route I will let others comment.....
