All,

It's about time we had another meet up at Rivington.

I suggest Sunday, July 7th at the usual 11ish.

Regards,

Graham.

D1 Renovation; had it for 50 years and thought I ought to start :)

However, as I thought it might take a while, bought a B40 to ride.

Sounds like a plan.Just trying to think what the best way from here is avoiding motorways and dual carriageways even though I got a 4th gear now don't really fancy it 😁 do you go past car mill?

No but I know the way you mean.i was thinking turn towards westhoughton and it brings you out near the big roundabout with the pub and the main road into Horwich.Doesnt make much difference either way.Could meet near 3 sisters or something if your going that way as it's a better route 👍🏼
