Thanks, Phil. I'm currently preparing some material about intro rides, and this resource will come in very handy.

I'm proposing to lead a D run on the 23 Feb. It'll be part of my journey from flu like virus syndrome to the Snowdrop and Dave Cole is supporting. All depending on safe weather. Route will be lumpy but adapted to suit turnout. Probably cafe stop at Earlswood on return loop.

23rd Feb went well. A Tuesday "proof of concept" run with Dave Cole and Derek Reynolds on 18th was also a success. We are doing another Tuesday D today starting from the Black Horse at 9.15.
