    Not so bad on a faired bike, but legs akimbo on a cruiser ain't fun in the rain.

    I'm heading off to Hartside top cafe Alston CA9 3BW on Saturday morning if anyone is interested to arrive at 1pm. Probably go down A7 to Galashiels then swap onto A68 then back up A7 through Brampton (amazing roads). Not a fast run as having a free day make most of it. Will stop and get fuel at Tesco station on A7 at end of Edinburgh by pass 9:30 so not too early a start.

    I'll check here before I head away


    Then a run down borders Sunday if folk want to do that?

    Friend of mine died recently, some folk organising a memorial run on Sunday for him, need to attend that.

    Hopefully it stays dry for us all.
