Not sure I'm up for westward trekking this May although the Fire Tower trail is on my to do list. There are some trails listed for near Dunoon on the forestry Commision site as well.

Quite fancy Carron Valley though now the weathers improving, I think I'm becoming a trail centre fan, Jedburgh put me off old school a bit.

Kaiser,

I'm happy to do any trail centre on the 16th including Innerleithen again cos it was actually quite good :D

Quite fancy Newcastleton, Carron Valley and Drumlanrig as well.

Cheers

:lol: my thinking was doing Ae leaving kirroughtree and dalbeattie for the summer months when its drier and glentrool too, slot newcastleton in nearer the end of the year since its the smaller of the centres. Though I maybe knock off the glentrool long route before SSUK :?:

good suggestion- glentrool will be a good test of fitness, I'm up for that.

.......better get the miles in then :shock: - just fitted a gusset 18 tooth cog to the dale so is running pretty nice now.

I was having some chain slipping issues and the deep teeth of the gusset have sorted it, I had read the posts telling you should go with a ss specific cog and now know why it is so important. I have decided on 36:18 what you going with?
