Friday, October 12, 2007 Trip to Scotland 5 -7 October

The Delegates

Twas a fine trip. Lasting memories will include:

  • The fantastic weather - 3 days unbroken sunshine - in October?!
  • The hospitality of Ewan and the Cross Keys Hotel in Peebles
  • The really quite tricky Kona Dark Side northshore at Mabie
  • The Karaoke session! Not a word!

  • The steak and chips!

  • Hugh being passed uphill on day 2 by a 60 year old woman out walking

  • The 11 hours of potential biking time spent by Mark fidgeting with his video camera

  • Davy's spectacular fall on Spooky Wood - anything for the camera

  • International man of mystery Enda joining the party from Copenhagen with fresh legs

  • Stevie's small shin scrape and subsequent tosser footballer shinguards

  • Lavabo using the excuse of a bad back to drink with Rodger solidly for 2 days.

  • Bugsy's disgusting cycling tops, but gorgeous Arthur Daly motor

  • The blessed hand of the Virgin Mary herself intervening to prevent Ian from going over the lip of about 20 berms

  • Phil beating the baying women off him (and the dusky, smouldering Ian) in the Keg!

  • A fresh and spritely Jonny Gray being accused of having a hangover by Ewan because he supposedly "looked terrible"

  • Rick being an all-round super chap! - Mountain bike trails for Northern Ireland Bikers - see our Southern Scotland pages.

Look, lads, don't let this go too far. One competitor already seems to have got something fouled up in the chain:
