After some thoughts I'll leave this time. It's so dull and awful I barely force myself to get up and go to work. Besides, it's new year eve, got quiet limited time.

I will be destroying the aesthetic of the ride with my SS'd neon pink Claud Butler :lol:

Rado, its Scotland, its winter, you are human and thus cant hibernate, go on and join us plus most of Drumlanrigs trails have thick tree cover. I've been out for a wee bit around my local trails in the peeing rain and axle deep mud, it cheered me up greatly :D

I will admitt the prospect of getting up at 0430-0500am then stting out for Edinburgh to catch the train at 0630am to Falkirk to join ZZ and Rob for a 0720 departure is not filling me with joy. However the banter and cycling will be great and thus worth it :wink:

My thoughts too ...

I had intended to come along if it had been Pollock Park for an hour or so but 5 or 6 hours off the plot on Hogmanay wouldn't go down well and I need to keep in the good books for Baltic Bawbags..... (Which may be an issue cause my daughter is competing in the Celtic Cup gymnastics comp that day ! )

We'll get you down to Drumlanrig at some point Radek!

I felt the same on the morning of the Blairadam ride, listened to the wind howling and thought 'can I be bothered?' The weather was crap, but the company and the riding was good! Glad I went - the Drum will be the same.

BBC says weather will be mild with minimal rain :D
