It's kinda hard to escape a group that is there for a specific reason (games conference and birthday party) especially when it is all paid for. If I had the time I would have stayed on a little longer but I'm very busy at work just now :( (still here in fact).

On any other day CK would have got an email for route advice.
I did try - I suggested we all cycle across the bridge on hire bikes but I was laughed at for that one in favour of a walk and bus option.

It was too hot at the canyon for anything other than walking and besides our helicopter didn't have a bike rack :) the drop offs look promising too.

pics on my facebook page but you need to be my friend first :)

Jealous, yours trail centre looks less hardwork.

65% of the Innerleithen route is uphill and thats the first 65% of the ride :shock:

The DH bit is meant to be worth it, better be as i reckon collapsing through exhaustion on the climb is highly likely :roll:

iphone camera pics are probably the best you'll get from our trip and mine will be the only retrobike !

Look forward to your tales of daring do !
