I was half joking, but then I started looking at gumtree :roll:

2 Mavericks for £30 http://edinburgh.gumtree.com/edinburgh/07/39057707.html - got to be one useable bike in there. Although this has a certain appeal http://edinburgh.gumtree.com/edinburgh/59/37232659.html.

Funny, never been all that big a Raleigh fan, despite spending the majority of my childhood on them.

Would people be happy to do Sunday 16th instead of Saturday 15th to accomodate DaveDH. if not we'll stick to 15th, Dave would only show us skill less types up or slow us down :lol:

Cheers

Enid, don't worry, we really do take it easy, my ten year old son has joined us on a couple of outings on his 20inch wheeled bike, including Glentress.

We stop frequently to talk, usually at the end of each section, some even stop for cigs to get their breath back!

We are less slow going downhill though :)

16th is as likely for me as the 15th - I will try to make it.
