|Well here we are in 2017 and our biggest event is the Maggie’s run, this year will be on Sunday 14th May. Start as last year in the car park of the Red House Hotel, Coupar Angus, and the run will be up into Deeside. Details later.
NOW HERE’S THE REST!-
Chippy Runs will be the last Tuesday of the month leaving No31 in the Wellmeadow at 7.00 sharp so come fuelled up and ready.
Other Tuesday night short runs can happen any Tuesday, just meet at 7.00 at No31 and see who else turns up! Back to 31 later.
Sunday runs will be the first Sunday of the month leaving No31 at 10.00, destination to be agreed on the day or the Tuesday before.
Wednesday runs, for those who can, will be probably be arranged on the Tuesday night beforehand, so if you have a Wednesday free and want to come, get in touch.
Weekend runs are mainly Saturday/Sunday events with one overnight stay on the Saturday but anyone wanting to make a longer weekend of it can leave on Friday for a two-night stopover. Otherwise meet at No31 at 10.00am.on Saturday. Some will camp if possible, and others will want a comfy bed, so both options are fine.
The Chapelhill Inn near Harrietfield are advertising a “Mini Bike Night” on the second Thursday of the month which might be worth a visit sometime.
The Dundee Bikers Forum online also hold various runs etc if anyone wants to look at their webpage.
