Ok so finally after 4 years I have made it up north, only 550 miles from where I have spent the last 35 years of my life.

So is anyone on here anywhere near me?

I'm near Huntly Aberdeenshire

Anyone nearby?

Afraid not! :(

I grew up in the shire but I've been exiled in this awful lowland central belt for the last decade!

I'm in Dundee - which isn't that far, there are a few quieter members up there - Messiah for one.

Are you anything to do with Development Racing (Lee) or is the name just a coincidence?

What dragged you up here? You will like it although the language of your locals might be a mystery for a while.

Dundee? Is that your idea of local? bloody hell mate are that that few of us up here?

Yeah the language is much fun, I sat on the train this morning listening in to the conversation of two locals and at least 50% of it was Dorric.

Can't wait for the Snar!! :wink:

Not sure if you'll get proper ones as far north as Huntly but you need to sample some Rowies/Butteries quick smart. They don't look like much but one of those beauties will fill you up all day, which is just as well cos there's about a day's calories in 'em!

Welcome to the clan macretro, most of us are down in the central belt but we do travel around a fair bit if the trails are worth it so I'm sure we will hook up at some point. :D

Welcome to Rural Supersparsity!

Cairngorms - excellent cycling territory for roadies, pretty good for mountain bikes too.......
