I will definitely do my very best to be there :)
I am only taking the 'pish' about the Bonar Bridge run mate :)
As for cakes stops it wouldn't be hard to top the Bonar Bridge run. There was a Spar shop in Bonar Bridge that had a cake, I'm sure, then after approx. 108klm there was the next cake stop, the Spar shop back at Bonar Bridge :) :) :) There was a warm soup at Ledmore hotel though, to be fair ;) And, Brian and I did do that run twice in four weeks :)
I'm sure there are lots of nice cake shops in Perthshire :)

Killin & Loch Tay in early autumn is good. Lots of orange beech trees 8)

Fancy the Great North Bike Ride... http://www.greatnorthbikeride.com/

Also The Ride of the Falling Rain... http://www.exploreargyll.co.uk/event/87 ... -rain-2017

Islay is good but being an island complicates things :xmas-big-grin:

Brian, me thinks you still do not get the difference between a road bike and a roadster bike. Principal difference is they seem to have used twice as much bog standard steel for the roadster as they have for the road bike. I like roadsters, they have their place but that place is not a peleton although they make great near imoveable objects to secure you high end exotic bike too :P

I seem to have the same problem differentiating between road bikes and fatbikes :)

I remember Killin Mr P, that was a great, if soggy run :)
We all enjoyed it though as it was very lovely in the autumn.

I was playing with the big boys ;)
