Any brits fancying some short winter rides?

I am a huge fan of winter riding unlike most people so I guess no responses to this topic.

I am looking to rack up some miles for experience sake over the winter and coming summer. For the winter I plan to just stick to the UK but come spring/summer some long weekend rides down into southern france/spain would be very cool, hit the alps for a bit of scenery grabbing etc etc.

Anyway if anyone else is up for it then let me know. I am a youngun btw, 20, been riding a while but only now getting my Cat A licence.

I only got a 250 that tops out around 80 so superbikes need not apply

Hey, scrape the frost off and go for a ride. If you walk funny because your ankles are frozen when you get off the bike so be it.
A long time ago I came to london and bought a 175 to tour about. It was march, went a bit north went out to lands end then rode thru paris in the snow. It was a great time. Ride to live live to ride.
