Roon the Tap run plan

The current plan is to leave on Friday 16th Sept, stay Fri night in Ullapool, then on Saturday have a  run to Thurso via Durness, and back a different way, and have a meal and a few beers back in Ullapool on the Saturday night, home Sunday 18th. The campsite is still open in Ullapool for anyone interested in that. Otherwise book your own accomodation or get in touch as I’ll be looking for B&B too. Expect to pay around £40 a night incl breakfast. And petrol money for a 600/700mile weekend! And we want sunshine – please pray or whatever you do……but the midgies won’t be too bad now ha ha

Run tomorrow!

There’s a proposed ride to Moffat on Sunday, tomorrow, leaving Blairgowrie 10 am. Meet at No 31 . Back via Linlithgow. All welcome to come along. Turn off at Edin ski slope towards west Linton then across to Peebles, Moffat road and down to Moffat.
Sorry for the short notice but i’ve been in Skye this week so only found out today. Having done 500miles and 3 hills since wednesday I’m having a  day off tomorrow! Weather looks good though and watch out for the speed camera vans. I passed one near Crianlarich this morning and suspect unmarked cars were out too. Hundreds of bikes on the roads heading west and north, but none going south and east like me!.
Remember Chippy Run this Tuesday

Maggie’s Run news

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.

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.
