Sorry for this very late notice to everyone who signed up for this ride but I'm afraid that I'm unable to do it now. I have asked my pal in Glasgow if he would still be able to put up a route and lead it but he is not able to do it either. My reason is that Sandra has entered an event down in The Borders and would like me to be her support rider. This means a very early start on Sunday morning.

Sorry to disappoint people but there is still the Ride To The Sun the following week. I've decided to do it although there is the logistical problem of getting to Carlisle then home from Cramond. I've managed to organise my travel to Carlisle and have decided to ride home from Cramond in the early hours. Once again, apologies.

I'd be up for this if you are still going ahead.

Cheers - Rory

Last year seven of us had a blast riding 100 miles through the night on the 22nd/23rd June. We had such fun that we are going to do it again this year on the 15th in to the 16th June. That's Saturday into Sunday. The route hasn't been finalised yet but it will be a bit different from last year. Also, it's the week before Ride To The Sun so a good warm-up for that event if anyone is doing it. I am!

Bumping this up the list to see if there are any other night riding thrill seekers interested in coming along. If you've never done an overnight ride you don't know what you are missing!!

Gary, Fraser and anyone else who might be considering it, Dave Lindsay has just reminded me that the Battle of the Braes is on the 15th and, as a club, we should support that event either to race or as a volunteer/marshal. Therefore I am proposing that we do the ride on the Saturday into Sunday i.e. 15th/16th. Would that be ok?

Perfect, I wanted to do RTTS but a wedding is clashing with it so this will be ideal.
