As mentioned in the Blog, I think it’d be interesting to do something a little different for a Club run in the summer… So the proposal is for a social picnic somewhere. It’ll obviously be weather dependent, with a call made on the day about whether or not it actually happens! The group ride will also need to start later as there’s no point in planning a picnic lunch and arriving there at 10:30…
The bare bones of the plan are:
– depart the Ellon Academy campus at c.11:00AM
– ride to the designated picnic venue
– show off how much picnic gear you’ve managed to cram into a saddlebag and eat excessive quantities of scotch eggs, cucumber sandwiches and pork pies
– ride home
The venue is the hard bit, but I think Aden offers a good option. There’s a good 25 mile route via Collieston, Hatton and Clola. There’s an option to ride out the railway line (with QL friendly options to start some way along the line); public toilets and plenty of space to stake our claim to a premium picnic spot.
Let us know if you’re interested, have an idea for a better venue, change in format, etc!
