    Message for (not such) bad ideas - Do you still fancy going out tonight? If so we could meet at the war memorial in Headingley (between the oak and skyrack), 7.00 ish? Post up here if you still want to go out and I'll check before I go home tonight.

    Well, It's miserable as sin outside! It looks like bloody november!John has mailed me a map of the route - if anyone fancies coming out, then post here / mail me before 5pm. Otherwise I don't think I'll be going out owing to the rubbishness of the weather!Neil

    Neil - I have plotted Julian's route on a map and can download onto the GPS.Looking at the weather this moment, with the rain in the last few days and the bikers unable to make the ride - is it worth it?
