Regards,
Steve

Hello,
Please are there any recommendations for a watch as above with a built in non belt heart monitor.
Which is quite simple to set up.
The availability seems mind boggling !!

Yorkshire Wolds/Lincolnshire Wolds

Please does anyone know of any decent off road routes around the Wolds. I know of some but they seem to include a fair amount of road riding. I want to test out my new full suspension bike.
Please are there any guide books recommended.
Thanks
