postcode for twatnav is EH45 8NA

Full address is:
Glentress Forest Lodges
Linnburn Farm
Eshiels, Peebles
The Scottish Borders
EH45 8NA
United Kingdom

You can also use the postcode for the new Peel centre, which is right over the road.

Don't think it's been decided what time to meet. I think everyone is just getting there when they're getting there.

What's the score with getting set up then? Are people wanting to go get the tents up then go riding, or go riding first, meet up and all go over together to get set up?

If we're setting up first then going for a ride, first one on site needs to pick out a good spot big enough for us all, in an area where we're allowed a campfire.

This is the address at the bottom of the website:
Linnburn Farm , Eshiels , Peebles , The Scottish Borders, EH45 8NA

And a map. Not sure how accurate that is in relation to the campsite, but if you're travelling from Cannock way, I imagine it's pretty close :D

EDIT: Posting this anyway as it took me a couple of minutes, regardless of that darn cat :lol:

Hmm, I've just looked and it appears the Bikebus isn't running on Saturday, or is already fully booked. Either way, I'm shafted for getting down there from Edinburgh.

I'll get my thinking cap on.

I too am looking into making flapjacks :D
I'm about to leave work for the last time before this holiday woo hoooooo!!! I'm so looking forward to the trip now, it's been a nightmare few days and some future prospects have been announced about my job, which isn't sounding good (not losing work, just not what I want) so this holiday will be awesomeness!

I'll be providing cake for you all to have a nibble.

I also have a bag of cherry tangfastic haribos to share round.

NOM!

Keith, we'll have to sort thursday out at some point too. Might give you a bell later if you're not up to much.

Do any of you homos need a brand spanking new set of XT chainrings? (triple)

If so, £40 for those on the cruddy weekender. Let me know and I'll bring them with me.

Luckily for you, yes - I think there's about 35 of them, give or take a compost bin (no lid).
