  • Another Introduction Thread

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Neil, I'm 32ish (soon to be 33). I live in the "upper" Billinge area. And I am desperate to get out and about when I can. I've got two young kids who's bed time is around 7.30 and try to fit my riding around them. I've got a trail bike and have been doing mostly reds, although have ventured into blacks when with more experienced riders and even did a day at Innerlithen (though those trails were way out of my comfort zone).

    I hope I can join you guys and get out with you regularly, I want to improve my skills (and fitness) and just do more riding. I desperately want to be able to jump well too!

    Welcome to the club Neil. We do skyrides in the Billinge area on a Tuesday. Usually meet at the Waterside at 7. Then do 10 to 15 miles. Obviously you would need good headlights for bike and helmet! We also do a ride on a Thursday same time but from Rainhill. What nights suit you during the week?

      Morning WJ, either day works for me.

      Would just need to confirm I'm ok to come with the wife, as she'll need to do bed time with the kids. I'll try for today. And can confirm I have good lights and a helmet.

      By waterside, do you mean the carvery down by the damn?

        Yes mate, that's right. I will post a ride up for tonight as there is not currently one on but I can meet you there. Am riding up from Warrington.

            Cheers fellas. I've been green lit by the wife. Happy to meet up at the eagle and child. If you're leaving the dam at 7, say 7.15 by the pub? I'll (try to) private message you both my contact details.

                      How inconsiderate of her to schedule her birthday to clash with riding

                      Welcome to the club and hope to catch you on another ride soon.
