Border reivers nocturnal ride route

Tobias has finalised the route to Berwick upon Tweed and then onto Holy Island for those that have the stamina. Tobias's route provides ample time for a bit of bounderising along the way and we should get to the East coast with time to see the sun rise.

The ride is leaving from the Black Bitch in Linlithgow at 9.00pm with participants collecting for a drink beforehand. If you aren't riding why not come and cheers off!

Start: Saturday 6th June, 9pm, Black Bitch
Finish: Berwick Upon Tweed (130km) and then on to Holy Island (150 km)
Return: by train (first one leaves Berwick at 11.02am and costs £24) or ride back
Holy island tides: are out 6.10am to 1.35pm
Speed: this is a social ride at about 12mph, any faster and we wont be able to bounderise properly!
Bring: Warm reflective clothing, adequate lights, food, tools, spares, hot drink, map
Route: here on bikely

I would just like to point out that I did not have time to do a recce for this ride. This means that I don't have a clue where we are going.

Therefore, any rider joing us on the nocturnal does so strictly at his/her own risk. Even more so than is the case on other rides.
