I am participating in the Ride to the sun event on the 22nd from Bitts Park to Cramond beach..looks great as its through the night.

In August there is the Solway Spinner from Morton Manor..100km job.probs do that one as well
Then the Cross Border one in Sept, i may well.put myself through hell again with that one.

Hi
I’m doing the Ride to the sun so will see you there-wear something distinctive like you did on the Lanercost

Did the Mallorca 312 last month-that was punishing

Will look at the Solway thing which looks fun

As well as doing this ride next Saturday evening, I have been raising money for the people i support on a daily basis. So thought i would plug myself on here with the just giving page that was set up. Any donations would be very gratefully accepted. The West Coasters bus have already made a fantastic donation back in May following the Yeovil trip. Its great i have passed my initial target of £300 with a lot of offline donations to go along with online donations.. so the more i raise it will go towards a good cause. Cheers folks.

Laffy ..i ordered a new british cycling top which arrived today ..its the older version with sky on it..so could be wearing that one on saturday evening.. or a sky fluo top if it arrives in time..i should be easy enough to identify...

Will you be getting scran at Moffat chippy at the 43 mile point pit stop ? A dirty chicken kebab sounds healthy enough before a 7 mile climb... I am hoping i last out 100 miles as ive not been doing long distance this year.

Dirty Chicken Kebab at the chippy before a 7 mile climb sounds like the perfect recipe for a technicolour yawn by mile 3 :-)

I did the ride at Haydon bridge last weekend, that's worth a look if you want a new route, well organised, some decent roads and some good views...not quite a chicken kebab but you get a voucher for a free hog roast sarnie at the finish too.

Only downside is the route is savage in a moderate wind or stronger.

It's better to be silent and assumed a fool than to speak and remove all doubt

Maybe something light to eat will do instead☺..the event organisers do say half the portions to speed up.Moffat chippy must make a bomb that night mind..reckon 1k of cyclists will participate.
Ive always fancied a different sportive in future to test myself.Out Hayden Bridge way has plenty of hills around it..Will have to look further a field next year and see if i get time off..what was the event called Huntinghorn?

Hi

What time are you planning to set off?I will be wearing my Movistar kit-the comparison with Quintana stops there.

Will check forecast-we absolutely don’t want a wind from the north east

The Haydon Hundred it’s called Mark.
Plenty of hills, takes in three counties too Northumberland, Durham and as it also goes through Alston Cumbria and Nenthead you won’t need your passport ;-)
