Back by popular demand, the Black Country /Shropshire team are putting a begginers day on to introduce members to green lanes.

Dates are to be formalised after the Black country pub meet on Dec 7th, but we aim to run late Jan or early Feb 2011. Lanes will be in Shropshire (Longmynd) and will be suitable for total novices in standard road cars.
We will not be accepting experienced members on the list, its a begginer day.

If its a crisp day the views will be cracking.

I would love to give this a go, will keep watching for dates to be posted.
The later the better for me as I am still working on the Fronty but it should be on the road by the end of December early January
I would prefer a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.
