    Hello-o--o---o? Did somebody say something? Or was that just the wind whistling by? 💨

    Hi Hilift, nice to know there's another hombre in this town! ☺

    I guess everyone is out and about on their bikes enjoying the weather, especially today! 29C forecast in the UK. Roll on "UK warming"!

    Sounds like a tidy run from Sheffield. Did you go on from the Cat & Fiddle to do the rest of the famous twisties on the A537 towards Macclesfield?
    Great road. Shame about the spread cameras!

    Im very envious of the guys in Sheffield having the whole of derbyshire on their doorstep . I used to live in Rotherham and still have strong ties with Sheffield , but its nearly always in the car .

    the coastal region of north Norfolk where I currently reside has absolutely nothing to offer in the way of good bike roads , more so this time of year as its crawling with ,oliday makers and now the kids are back t school its the turn of the retireds fookin dawdling along and looking no further than the end of the bonnet .no fun at all .

    riding in the dark brings with it other hazards like the high numbers of deer and the appaling conditions of the roads .so my biking days are numbered now . and with so much going on in my life the bike comes very sadly near the bottom of the pile .

    Ive been trying to get to visit my son up in leeds for the past 6 weeks but that don't look like its gonna happen either .

    I have a friend who has recently seperrated from his wife and is now living on his own , hes got the life of fookin riley out at the drop of a hat , I had t tell him t stop ringing me as im just getting depressed

    Usually do the full run into mac then back to buxton via whaley bridge but not last night. Cameras are a pain the challege is to try hold 50 everywhere gets a bit scary in the hairpins.

    I'm quite lucky I only have to travel approx. 20 miles and I'm into North wales, great roads in all directions to various coastal destinations, fixed speed cameras are few however the local plod do like to play with their speed cameras on occasions, normally fellow bikers travelling the opposite direction give you notice.

    20 miles gets me to the start of the borders roads or heading north towards the highlands. I'm only 110 miles from Oban.
