Talking Borders Bimble - Next Sunday - 15th April


Who fancies a wee run around the borders then?

Suggest we meet at Carnwath, then head over East in the general direction of North Berwick, wher there happens to be a nice chippie and also Ice Cream available, so could be classed as the alternative Ice-Cream run !!!

Then thought a run back across some very nice roads to end in Moffat, where you can pick up some very nice toffee or sweeties to take back to your nearest and dearest.

Run is around 165 miles, which added onto the commute to Carnwath from central belt, will be plenty for a nice wee run. Rough route below. Will fine tune over the week to hit all the nice roads.

Meet at the 10:30 @ Cross, next to Market Bar in the middle of the wee ****hole that is Carnwath, near to the co-op and the RBS Bank, so you can pull cash and buy sweeties for your wee day oot!

Don't worry there's about 9 stops on it for SIII to fuel up the bike

Same as this, the best colours scheme (the blue wheels grow on you).

Very nice that.
Thanks for going to the trouble to organise a ride. Afraid I'm still unfit, only got discharged last Thursday. It'll be 2 / 3 months if not more.

Probably, will give a bit more notice next time hopefully. I am on the A75, so you could always come over and meet up and ride to meeting point.
