Default Saturday Run!

Morning all,

Checked the weather and decided to go out with a few folk from Edinburgh on Saturday (good decision as Sunday was monsoon stylee weather!)

Me and 3 others down to Galashiels, onto Selkirk and then finish at St Mary Loch, where we meet a few others from Dumfries

Eat lunch, watched the world go buy (invaded by a bus load of wrinklies!! Seriously grannies that where well over 80! Like a swarm!!)

Back on bikes and back over the past Megget Res & Talla Res, on to A701 and home!


ZZZOOOMM!!

Brilliant day! Great weather and some amazing roads!

I need the practice so when i do meet you guys i can keep up! haha!

Good run that! I love hte bit of road near the Grey Mare's Tail, where you can only see about 20 metres ahead at a time. Too bad if you get stuck behind a caravan though But it's a ridiculously fun road.
