Gotta love having a Plan 'B'.

I like your thinking Dusty, at least then I'll not be the one sent for all the supplies!

Hope the weather's good tho' - I'm looking forward to seeing where you suggest riding to, even if I'm just enjoying the scenery from the back seat.

Well I'm sitting back enjoying the afternoon sunshine here at Motherwell and the forecast for (Yarrow) St. Mary's next wknd is still 20c , sunny and dry . So , any one arriving on Friday , bring a couple of sausage , or what you fancy and we'll have an 'open fire' barbie. Should be a bit of drunken fun .
At approx 21:00 the cabaret will be provided by 'wantedpillyseat' and 'big ray' trying to put their tents up in the dark' . Anyhoo , see ya later.

p.s. Ride out ? I always fancied a blast up to visit Roslyn chapel but I'm easy , as long as it involves a cafe . X

Following on from Dusty's suggestion, it could be,

''The Rievers meet their Gods''
starting off with a scenic run through the Castle''O'er'' forest to Samye Lings Tibetan Buddhist Monastory deep in the Borders, then onto ''Hunt the Holy Grail'' at Rosslyn Chapel, after which a scoot down to Lindisfarne and Holy Isle for prayers, coffee and donuts !!
Sunday could be 'Homage to the Loch', guys bring your speedo's, girls your bikinis,( Steve H and myself will of course be in our underwear!) for a mass baptism/swimathon !!

Here endeth the itinerary !!
Richard (lol)

On the sunday it's the Steve Hislop Memorial Run through the Borders. The 'meet' is at Denholm Green , nor east of Hawick 09:30 .
This is a 130mile trundle thru the Borders, Northumbria and Cumbria. There's usually a couple of hundred bikes caterpillaring along at speeds as high as 30mph, ya know the sort of thing, chaos.
If we have two groups on sunday , I'm sure we will all meet up back at Tibbie's for a pint and dinner .

@ BigRay - me, and I'll bring rice and a pan to heat up curry in.

@ JP - don't think BigRay does small portions, but his curry is pretty good and you'd be coming back for seconds if he did!

More elusive than the Holy Grail, methinks.

9.30 pm more likely

I'm back, put my hand in me pocket (well paypal actually) and paid up.
Is there gonna be a planned ride out on Saturday? Or just unplanned chaos?
I'm not too sure about the Memorial Run though, pootling at 30 seems a bit of a waste.
Let me know so if I end up all tired and emotional on Friday night and set off later Saturday at least I'll know where to find you. i.e. exactly not where you'll say you'll be.

Anyone booked some sunshine for us?

Hi Steve, welcome back.
Dusty and Richard seem to have suggestions for rides but I don't suppose anything will be firmed up until we've stirred our stumps on Saturday morning. When I know where we're heading for I'll drop you a text.
You and the missus want curry on Saturday or booked food at the Inn? - Ray has offered to do a curry and just needs to know numbers.

Sunshine, Steve ?! how are you spelling that?!!! where do you think this is Fort Augustus!! naw afraid you've had your summer, its all wind and rain from here in, i did try and have a word with 'The Big Man' for ya, apparently he was too busy for such a wee country, seemingly the weather is concentrated in the south of England, he's organised 27 degrees for the weekend down there!!
Fri, Sun, Mon, looking ok, sat stay in bed, Steve Hislop Run, stay in bed, oops sori who said that! lol

Saturday is looking much better in Dumfries & Galloway and in Ayrshire than Lothian and the Borders, when Sunday is looking flippin' glorious (pack-your-shades weather).
Maybe Ray can help us find the best chippy in Ardrossan on Saturday and we'll utilise our day of rest for our Holy reivering???
Of course all this can change overnight.

Are you all packed yet?

izzyhill @ 22/08/2013 17:01  

We are coming up Saturday so we might go via Lindisfarne and catch up with you there if that's on the run.

I'm not heading to Ardrossan though, I only go there to get the ferry to Arran! And it's a hell of a detour from Durham.

Looking forward to catching up with you all again.
