:: Date: Sunday 14th August 2011 @10 for 10:30!

:: Distance/time: Probably a couple of rides dependant on level/fitness though most is doable for all, part of the reason for Drumlanrig is its retro friendly. Ususal swap shop and best bike compie!

:: Extra: Possible ride on the Saturday for those wishing to make the most of the trip. Please show any interest!

:: Meeting at: Drumlanrig, this will be in the main car park. Very easy to find. Drive up to the big house and park in the right after the kiosk!

:: Directions: HERE

:: Terrain: Details to follow.

:: Tyre Choice: Doesn't really matter as long as amber walled!

:: Route: Details to follow.


::CampingPenpont has been recommended

:: Flea Market: There was a really good, impromptu one at both Cannock and the FoD with top quality items at knock down prices plus tons of karma. Feel free to bring stuff along for pre-ride bartering.

:: No helmet, no ride!

We've had over 40 riders at all the previous rounds at Thetford, Cannock and the Forest of Dean - sign up now!

Midgies are likely to be abundant all over Scotland this year, but at least it will mean a bumper season for Garibaldi biscuits too. you don't think that is fruit in there do you?

But here is a forecast you can check nearer the time, Drumlanrig is low at the moment...

I'm aiming to join the fun ;)

I am interested in camping over somewhere too or even a bit of floor space for my air bed would be nice.
