    My name is Ian I’m 38 years old, married living in Prescot.
    I have recently purchased a mountain bike and began riding locally, would like to join the club to participate in local rides and rides further afield to have fun and gain more experience.
    Would it be possible to join the Thursday ride this week?

    Thanks Ian.

    Hi Ian,

    Yes come along on Thursday night. We will be riding off at 7pm from the Manor Farm pub in Rainhill so arrive in enough time for that.

    See you on Thursday evening.

      Hi Ian,

      Good to see you last night.

      As discussed:

      Pedals these (might need to search around for places with then in stock) or these:

      Dropper seat post: something like this is the cheapest option to get you started and get the saddle out of the way - you want the 27.2 option. I've had one of these and they're not going to last forever but for 50 they're worth it. You'll need to pay at least 100 to get something better.

      Tyres: I'll have a look in my tyre box as I've probably got something in there that will suit.

        Hi Peter,

        I enjoyed the ride last night thanks for taking me with you guys, hopefully be able to join you for another ride.
        Thanks for the information I'll have a look for the pedals and dropper post.

        Cheers Ian.
