    Some good roads round there and the one to Nantwich from Whitchurch used to be great.

    Luckiest Biker I ever saw was on the A41 in that general area

    I was going one way with two artics in front and a right hander coming up.

    Biker coming the other way low sided it and slid between the two trucks and into the ditch unhurt

    Head out to Bridgnorth Stu, from Himley end side, some cracking roads and when you get to Bridgy, spot of lunch in a stunning market style town. You'll see plenty of riders en route.

    If you ride out on a weekday let me know, I'll join you, weekend present a problem due to family commitments.

    a bit of caution guys,I was out in my Kawasaki trail bike last sunday (not ridden for a year )....hit a tramline track in wet condition and the bike just flip under me ....end up with a dis-located thumb ,had surgery ,now recovering...but at least 4 weeks off work !

    main thing is to be aware of road conditions and ride SAFE .

    Make sure you wear ear plugs. I didn't used to when I first started and it's really bad for your hearing. Have fun and stay safe out there!

    My biggest piece of advice would be have a 1 on 1 training with the instructor not the big groups.

    It's not about learning fast it's about safety!
