We’ve decided to decide on the night folks! Turn up before 7 and we’ll probably go wherever the best weather is, be it east or west, for a wee run. 7pm leave no31. Or not if it’s wet!
Yes it’s our next chippy run on Tues 28th. Leave from No31 in the Wellmeadow as usual at 7pm.
Also our Maggie’s Run presentation will be on Tues 5th July, at 7.30pm sharp at the Maggie’s Centre in Dundee. Come along and we’ll hand over the cheque, over £2000!
Well wasn’t it a fantastic day for a run ! Great turnout of about 150 folk, and the new route was a cracker! Blair to Kirrie, Forfar, Montrose , then Stonehaven and up to Banchory for the lunch stop. Then along Deeside and back over Glenshee. Charlie had organised loads of food for everyone who came back to the Red House, where we had the Prize Draw and the raffle.
Looks like the total raised will be over £2000 so thanks to everyone who came along on the day and all our helpers, friends and those who donated prizes. Thanks also to the Red House Hotel Coupar Angus for hosting the start and finish.
And we made the front page in the Blairgowrie Advertiser with a group picture under the banner, and a good write-up about the Maggie’s, so thanks to Clare of the Blairie too for that.
With a miserable forecast for snow and high winds, not the night for a bike run so we’ll do it next month. Meet at 31 as usual tonight.
Tuesday night runs will start after the first Chippy Run – that’s the first Tuesday in May, the 3rd. Leave Wellmeadow sharp at 7.00
Poss destinations – Chapelhill pub on the Harrietfield road, Braemar (of course) and maybe we could decide on the next week’s destinations a week in advance. This will mean anyone on the run will be later arriving at No31.
Our 11th Maggie’s Run will be Sunday May 8th, starting at the Red House Hotel, Coupar Angus. We’re having a different route this year, so put it in your diary and come along!

The Club AGM will be on Tuesday 5th April, at No 31 as usual, for an 8.30pm start. Come along and have your say about what’s good and bad please, and what you want from the Club in future.
The Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary and two Committee members posts are up for renewal. More details of who’s interested soon and if anyone wants to volunteer please get in touch.
Yes, this year’s Maggie’s Run, the 11th, will be on Sunday May 8th, starting as usual around 10.00 from the Red House Hotel, Coupar Angus. This year we’re planning a new route, still around 120 miles, through fantastic scenery of course, and then finishing at the Red House instead of Maggie’s Centre in Dundee. More details to follow but put it in your diaries now!
Next club night will be 16th Feb
