    More Riders Needed!!

    Right, the Pink Way Around is fast approaching and for Region 10 we could do with some more support riders to help our baton carrier, Moira Scobbie, on her long overnight trip .
    Ok, so it's not much of a scenic opportunity 'cos we've got the short straw - which means we get to do all 325 miles in the DARK
    At the moment myself and Moira are doing the whole section and Egon and PhilM are leaving Inverness with us, PhilM is going as far as Aberdeen, not sure how far Egon is going yet?. We could therefore do with a few more GS'ers to join us, either from the start or anywhere along the route.
    We leave Inverness on Thursday 7th Sept at 23:00 and arrive in Berwick on Friday 8th Sept at 07:30.
    So come on GS'ers from the east of Scotland, do something a bit different and enjoy a night ride to Berwick

    If you can't join us, please, please, please at least make sure you support this charity ride by making a donation through this site:-

    For those of you with Garmin Mapsource software I've attached the Region 10 route.

    Cheers................................Grizzly

    How can you not be excited by the thought of riding through NE Scotland in a howling gale and lashing rain, Oh what fun.

    Come on folks it's for charity

    There is also the free coffee and biccies at mine (Aberdeen), might even stretch to bacon butties.

    The more the merrier.

    I can't download the sofware so not sure of your route?? Are you planning a trip straight down the A90 south of Aberdeen?

    I am due home that night and may be able to do part of the journey for ABerdeen soutwards.

    cheers

    That's a point, some company on the way up to Inverness would be nice, I'm sure we can figure something out for that.
