I've had a request to circulate details of a fundraising ride in our area. The details can be found at http://www.butterwick.org.uk/events/bigbutterwickbikeride/
I'm unable to ride it myself, but I've heard very good things about the Butterwick Hospice, so I'm sure they would appreciate any support.
I thought this might be the best place to introduce myself as the new regional organiser for Darlington.
I'm a 40 ish year old chap with a lifelong interest in all things cycling. From downhill racing, through to time-trialling and unicycling, and a fair bit of audax riding too, I've had a go at most things. I came to tandem riding as a means of spending more time on the bikes with my wife. Following a brief test ride we were hooked, and have since progressed to a 2 tandem household.
I'll be looking to contact current members in my area in the next few weeks, with the aim of planning a few rides. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me regarding cycling in the area. Please don't be alarmed if e-mail responses are a little slow....I much prefer tinkering in the shed or riding than sitting at a computer. E-mails are usually checked once or twice a week.
I look forward to meeting fellow enthusiasts in the future.
Firstly I'm terribly sorry for the lack of activity on this page. I have been struggling with computer issues and finding it difficult to access e-mails and the website. Secondly I've had health issues that are preventing me from riding this year.
I just wanted to draw attention to an upcoming ride in the area, organised by Liz and Andrew Charles. The venue will be near Darlington, Barton. Date 20/09/15.
