Many thanks to Sue and Gordon, the route, lunch venue and lunch were all first class. We both thoroughly enjoyed the day.

This was some run. Brilliant sunshine, snow on the hills, a spot of rain, good lunch (as always), good company, and I got home first! Thanks to everyone for a great day out.

Passed you all on the Duns to Gifford via Longfermacus road, looked very impresive one after another! I was the drooket looking cyclist heading the other way. Nice cars!
