I did it last year and really enjoyed it,
Yup - it was 09 and here is Cycling Weekly's report on it.Did it back in 2008 or 9 and it p1ssed for the whole 105 but despite that I really enjoyed it (and the cake stops), IMO it was the best organised Sportive Ive done
Hi Martyn,I will go and watch and take some photos of you all . The first part of the ride through Bonchester is only a couple of miles from home, on roads that I ride regularly. The short route is one of my summer favourites, especially after the climb to Note o' the Gate, with the road dropping down to Saughtree . I was hoping to enter this year, but the date clashed with something else happening the same day.
Sorry in making a late reply - have been in Glasgow for a few days. The roads are gernerally ok at the moment. There are a few craters but Scottish borders Council are filling them in at the moment. I'll be glad when the winter mud gets washed away too. It's really sunny here at present , and as I'm on a day off, I may go out for a spin this afternoon - well wrapped up though it's still a bit chillyHi Martyn,
What sort of condition are the roads in down there? I'm looking forward to this event already and its 6 months away
