I think I can safely say that the Long Mynd is a bit of a trip for most of us, so how about a Sidlaws ride instead? It's been talked about before but I'll step up and be (ir)responsible for the route. Same date, Sunday 14th October starting from Balkello Community Woodland car park near Auchterhouse.

Expect loose rocks, heather, broken mech hangers (that place owes me two) and one hell of a starting climb. You will be rewarded with epic views, proper narrow single track and haribo.

As a non official ride, I take no responsibility for death or dismemberment. Follow me at your own risk!

I'll try and make it :)

The Death and Dismemberment sounds appealing, any excuse for some time off work :)

Why are these things always when I'm working ? :(

I finish for 3 weeks holidays on the 17th !! No chance of getting time off as there's 5 folk on holiday already.

I don' think the clash with Shropshire will have any impact on their numbers. Sounds like a goodun.
