Far from it - I've just about mastered the first two, but the third still defeats me!

Like your style, Dave.

I'll try to make it depending on workload. My clothes should have dried by then.

Thanks for asking, Dave; it was good, nice and relaxing! Lots of sunshine, fresh baguette, smelly cheese, red wine and Kronenbourg. In particular the latter; so much better when brewed in its country of origin than the stuff brewed 'under licence' in the UK - utterly refreshing at the end of a hot day!

Have a reasonable tan, and a few more freckles on my forehead...

Might join you on tue night, although my knee is still a bit sore after andy crashed into me while i was stopped!

MC - i'd like to explore blairadam, lammermuirs and caberstone too

Those of you who haven't ridden Cambusbarron should do before they destroy all the trails!

Umm... yeah... sorry about that Stu... I knew you'd stopped and I would've (I think) stopped in time were it not for the entire front end of my bike disappearing into the sudden abyss that appeared - and me flying head over handlebars... [:I]

Thats OK ... I'm pretty sure you didn't do it intentionally! That will teach me to stand next to wheel grabbing abysses ...

In all seriousness, the only intentional aspect was me deciding that the best part of me (or the bike) to hit the back of your leg with was the top, domed part of my helmet! (Other than shoulder, outstretched hand or pointy part of bike.)

mc, stuartm- re the lammermuirs; Trail published a route over that way in the Jan 07 issue that looks interesting. The Eildons coould be good for a short blaast too.

well i reckon domed part of helmet was a good choice!

eildons would be good too ... i think househusband and some others have explored there before.

The Eildon Hills are great! And only half an hour or so away for me.

Saz seemed genuinely impressed after I took her down there a few weeks ago - and she only lives a few miles away from them! Surprising as it may sound, there are actually some very rocky descents to be found there. Some very nice sections of singletrack, too.
