From the North Jed is well signposted off the City of Edinburgh bypass.

We have in the heart of town a 14 bedroom fully refurbished Hotel under new ownership still under it`s old name for the moment "The Royal Hotel"
(take no notice of all reviews pre dating 2017, they were all true but it was "wanting" and now history) Off road parking.

Looking forward to meeting old friends and new acquaintances. :)

Chris.

Nice one Chris. I'm in.

Paul.
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Sounds brilliant, but alas, that clashes with our Holiday and Julies special birthday celebrations :(

Gutted to have to miss this one but I hope you all have a cracking weekend.

My good friend John and I scoped out a brilliant ride today, for the benefit of you all. Got to be the best ever. approx. 210 miles. loch, reservoirs, beef tubs, glens, rivers and even a Tibetan Monastery.

Importantly uncongested roads.

We are spoilt.

Basecamp Map of route to come shortly, when I have fathomed out the intricacies of my new Garmin software. :?

I have often thought of putting in my fave circulars of the routes in the Borders we have to MCN. Alas I fear for my life if I do as there exists a Fatal Fatwah from the Reivers if anyone should go public :shock:
