Scorchio in Scotland.
« on: June 27, 2019, 20:53:43 PM »
I had a nice 140 mile run in glorious sunshine today with pictures to prove it.
A couple of views over the Pentland hills taken on the back road from Innerleithen to Middleton.


This from the north side of Soutra hill on the A68.

And from the south side.

The next two pics are taken off the road from Lauder to Stow.



A really enjoyable few hours on the bike, for all you folks that have to work in this weather, you have my sympathy.

Every day above ground is a good day.

Cracking photo's Andy.

Puppy sitting again this week, just to settle the new fella in, so no work for me during this wonderful hot spell of weather.

Managed to fit in a small run out this afternoon . . .





I do like a bit of dirt on my tyres  ;D

Aye, had a cracking run over to Gairloch on Thursday.

Coming down to Kinlochewe



Loch near Achnasheen



Bout time I got some miles in on the GS now.  Brakes were binding a tiny bit so I cleaned them out properly last week, all good now.    Only four months until we hit South America on it, probably need to make sure everything is tickety-boo!

You could look at leaving Edinburgh on the A7 to Hawick then Bonchester bridge, Keilder, Bellingham, Otterburn, Rothbury, Alnwick, Eglingham, Chatton, Wooler, Cornhill, Kelso, St Boswells, then the A68 back to Edinburgh. That's about 240 ish miles with some interesting back roads and nice scenery. If you want more details of road numbers I can look it up for you as I can not remember them all.
