have to agree, just a row of 'cottages' as can be seen in many parts of the countryside. :D
Convention? what's that then?
Airnimal Chameleon touring, Orbit Pro hack, Orbit Photon audax, Focus Mares AX tour, Peugeot Carbon sportive, Owen Blower vintage race - all running Tulio's finest!

I used to live cycling up to Rivington for the peace and quiet.
These days it's a race track for bikers and a rat run for everyone else. There's that many parked cars along the lanes around the village and reservoirs that keeping to the left is all but impossible.
I miss the 90's.

+1 Rivington/Belmont positively unpleasant these days especially on Sundays with bikers wizzing past at 70 mph+. Don’t get me started on the litter and spent nitrous oxides canisters (who knew whipped cream was so popular in these parts). Rant over; I feel a bit better now.
