As the Inventor and Organiser of Bravo Scozia I thought I'd better chime in. Thanks to epicyclo for fielding enquiries up to now.
First of all my credentials. Foxfan - yes I have an '85 ish Muddy Fox by Araya built with lugs. Love it. Have a Marin Pine Mountain and 04 Giant NRS. Plus lots of Gillotts and other lightweights and several old roadsters.
I own a 1930's tweed cycling suit. It breathes because of the open weave but I know for a fact not all tweed is like that. It has won me Best Dressed Gent at the Harris Tweed Rides in Edinburgh and Glasgow this year. I also rode at the Goodwood Revival's Tour de France celebration this Year with Sir Chris Hoy. I used to ride Stop the City and Critical Mass when I lived in London.
As a Veteran Cycle Club member I have organised weekend road rides up here in the Highlands for the past 6 years.
Re the Bravo. I am still waiting to hear from 3 estates as to whether we can use their roads. I know we have a right to roam but I do not think that taking up to 50 riders through sensitive environments is the done thing without permission.
I want to feel that everyone involved or affected is happy which is why I changed the name.
Any queries do contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
The website is up but its under construction. Thanks!
