At the Stormont on Tuesday we set a few dates for runs ! and there were 5 of us turned up at 7 for a wee run down through the Carse of Gowrie by Rait and back via Tullybaccart. Great weather at last too!
Tuesday June 23rd will be the first Chippy Run – to Anstruther. Leave from the Stormont at 7 so if you want to come, be there sharp please!
The following Saturday is the Heartland meet at Luib on the 27th
The Tomintoul Bike Weekend is the 10/11th July and some of us are already booked in for that. It seems that’s also the date the SCAA Air ambulance folk have chosen for their Scone run, cancelled from May.
The next Chippy Run will be on Tuesday July 28th, probably to Arbroath or Inverbervie
And we set the date for the Richard’s Roond the Tap run – –Fri/Sat/Sun 25,26th and 27th September. This was the only date in Sept that suited everyone who was there on Tuesday, and we agreed going into October was too late. This year we’re going to do have to do it the opposite way round as that weekend is the Loopallu music festival in Ullapool, so the place will be very busy with nowhere to stay. So we’ll head for Thurso for the Friday night, camping or B&B, then have a run over to the west and Ullapool on the Saturday, and back to Thurso for saturday night drinkies, home on Sunday. At least that’s the plan for now, might change if anyone has a better plan, but the date’s fixed at last so put it in your diary!
…..and beware if you’re riding through the Wellmeadow for the next two weeks – the traffic lights have been turned off to try and solve the chaos, and there are new Give Way signs so watch out for drivers who aren’t paying attention!
