I have tended to run simple routes at a standard pace, using the roads I know well from years of doing IAM training and leading group rides for them.
My roads are a mix of single carriageway A, B's and lanes. Don't mind mud and potholes but try to avoid towns and heavy traffic.
Bit of a lanes lover grave, old style rider, slow in fast out. I am all weather rider, even ride in snow - OK, only on the c90!
Current rides C90, CB500r (1996) and FZ6 Fazer.
Mechanic by trade, normally have tool spares and puncture kit.
