    :hello: OK, time for 'Someone' to step up and "organise" :ohmy: this ride !
    • The Ride: TechMech's fabulous Perth Ride
    • Meeting Place: Statue in North Inch, Perth. Should be a photo here
    • Meeting Time: 1100 - this should give time for train travellers to ride to the start
    • Distance: ~70km (40 miles)
    • Terrain: mostly flat, some lumps, no real hills; cycle paths and quiet roads; excellent for new people, beginners; great for more experienced
    • Ride Time: about 4hrs actual riding :bicycle: - more including stops :hungry:
    • Stops: ~ 25km ?? Chapelhill Inn (limited food availability); ~58km Pitcairngreen Inn (some food - but not very much CAKE :hungry: ! :eek:
    • Pleasure Rating: High ^_^ - this is a lovely ride
    Please complete the Poll and we'll see who is coming - ALL ARE WELCOME :wahhey:
    Remember the 3 key rules of CC Ecosse Forum Rides:
    1. NO ONE gets left behind
    2. ANY BIKE will do
    3. There WILL BE CAKE ! :hungry: (though could be a bit limited on this one :blush:)
    It is also recommended that you bring:
    • appropriate clothing (well, Duh :rolleyes:) - sun cream/rain jackets/leggings/woolly bunnet :wacko:
    • spare inner tube/puncture kit
    • drinks and food - for the ride and 'bonk rations'

    I would hope not, that could be quite distracting. I don't like anything flying by me ^_^

    The train is usually quiet enough that you'll get on no bother
