Three weeks today we should be looking back on our achievements in the Border hills! 18 hardy souls are tackling the Ken Laidlaw Sportif – either 55 miles or 105 miles on a push bike! I was out yesterday morning in the mist with the newest member of the team (David Lunn) for a gentle 40 mile training run. And I will be out with the Edinburgh crew on Tuesday night too.
If you want to catch any of the action on Sunday 21st August then may I suggest the closest thing we have to Alpe D’Huez – The Swire, just outside Ettrickbridge between 10:15 and 11:15 (mile 22 on the map – http://veloroutes.org/bikemaps/?route=62754#)
