Wed 10th August - club run

The latest forecast for tomorrow suggests rain showers from about 3pm onwards.   Winds throughout the day will be light west-south westerlies.    I'm a bit undecided whether to stick with the planned route or amend it.   My experience of 'light showers' in this part of the country is they are often torrential.    

Whatever we decide, the ride will start at 9am from Langholm car park and we will stop for lunch approx 30 miles later in Moffat.   There will be no 11's stop unless you bring your own.   If we do the ride as planned, the route will go over 'The Devils Beef Tub' as far as Tweedsmuir, then Talla Water and drop down to St Mary's Loch.     Eventually Tushielaw and down the Ettrick Valley to Langholm.  There will be a couple of options for afternoon tea in the area of St Mary's Loch.

An alternative route if we wish from Moffat, is up the A708 direct to St Mary's Loch missing out Tweedsmuir and Talla Water.   That will reduce the overall distance to about 90 miles.    We can leave a decision about the route until we get to Moffat

Hope to see you at the start.
