Troops,

Shorty / Gary will be posting up shortly with some more info but for those of you in the Glasgow-ish area, Gary has recce'd a wee route for a midweek run.

The date chosen is the 16th of April. Numbers will be limited for the time being as this is the first time for a while that the region has experimented with runs.

Hopefully it will be a success and we can roll these out in other areas of the country where we have pockets of members - west coast, Stirling, the NE, etc.

Thanks to Shorty / Gary for sorting this out

I was thinking about one night next week for maybe a wee run over the Lammermuirs stop for pics with Cheviot in the background, through Duns and over towards Berwick for a bag of chips or something.

Hey what about if I maybe posted something on the forum for the Newcastle area and see if maybe they fancy a half way meet.

What do we think Edinburgers ??

Ok Chaps & Chapett's !!! Here is the route that Gary has worked out :-

Strathhaven onto the B7086 for Kirkmuirhill , onto the A72 through Lanark to Carstairs , then right onto the A721 through Newbiggin until it crosses with the A702 , turn right towards Bigger , on through the village of Coulter , then onto Abington where there is a petrol Station if you require fuel.

We would then head North on the B7078 (the old A74 ) through Douglas & on towards Kirkmuirhill then back onto the B7086 back to Strathhaven .

It has also been arranged for a stop at the Beautiful "Waterside Inn " either before or after the run for a wee chat & a bite to eat . As Dunc has pointed out "this is not a race " therefore "Safe Driving " is of utmost importance  . Numbers will be limited to 10-12 cars but you can bring along passengers as you need !

The date as posted is 16th April ( time to be determined ) If this is your "bag" please post here a.s.a.p as we need to contact the Waterside Inn with numbers . Also as said if this is a success then other mid - week runs to various locations will be organized through the Summer months.

Being Gary's mate I dread to think what he means by 'putting on a wee something'!! 

Stick me down for this, as long as work goes smoothly that day i'll be there.  Cheers.

Though I'm firmly in support of meetings on other than a Sunday, I doubt if I'll make it.  It depends on work, if I'm there, I'm there.  I'm only 10 minutes away from the Waterside

Just a note for those planning to go through East Kilbride.  Don't.  The East Kilbride - Strathaven (A726 I think) road is closed about Chapelton.
The official diversion - through Hamilton - is  pants.  The unofficial diversion is superb roads, but takes about 15 minutes.  After the Torrance Roundabout, turn first right into the small country road, follow that to a T Junction.  Turn right. Follow the road through Leaburn and pick up the signs for Darvel or Strathaven, turning left - there's a few options that get you to the same place.  Up and over the hills and on hitting the main road turn left for Strathaven.  You can turn left earlier - when it seems you are about 2 thirds of the way back down the hill and it gets you into Strathaven.

Enjoy.
