Don + trails + friends + cake

Don from Oregon is here in Scotland on holiday for 10 days. The (loose) plan is to ride lots, show Don some of the best trails and catch up with friends. I'm secretly hoping there'll be some cake eating in there too.

For our first ride we headed to Selkirk for the legendary Tuesday nightride with Pete Laing and co. Selkirk is blessed with an extensive network of trails heading off in all directions, many fettled into shape by the guys and girls who ride.

Last night we did loop taking in the Eildon Hills near Melrose. A planned 2.5 hr ride morphed into a 4 and bit hr ride! We got back just after 11pm! The trails were awesome, the weather was awesome. The steep descent off the back of the Eildons is one of the funnest i've done anywhere and had me giggling like a loon at the bottom.

The ride last night reminded me how lucky we are in Scotland to have so many ace trails on our doorstep.
