your more than welcome to join the bimbles anytime. most are not so exciting as that though as that route is one of the best. the road surfaces might be a bit ermmm dodgy but its worth it.

not luck, rider control of situation. a lot of people would have just crashed. mark it up to experience and pin a badge. double apex corners catch a lot of people out.

i get target fixation on one corner every fekin time and its a road i know very well but i still do it. the road we took from st mary's over the hill to innerleithen there is a left hand bend with a drain grate that is sunk into the road on a bad surface and its on the inside apex, i go over it every time. i have ridden that road since i was a teen.
