A fine sunny mild December morning and only four turned up at the roundabout. Clifford we were told has a sore back – hope you feel better soon! – but where were the rest of you? Ken, Innis, Jim and myself set off on a very enjoyable ride round the Black Isle. Ken chose the…

Seven hardy souls braved the cold weather and proceeded on one of Clifford's mystery tours.  Starting at Muir-of-Ord we turned right up a hill which took us out at Mullbuie onwards to Beauly which saw Charlie unable to go past his house.  Then there was six. Inverness co-op was the tea stop and very welcome…

Of hallucinations and predictions Well, finally we have some milder weather and eight of us meet expectantly at the roundabout. It’s good to get back on the bike some say. Huh. Off to Dingwall and up the hill to the old Evanton Road. Ouch. Ouch. Ouch. Now this is a bit of a shock to…

A promising morning delivered a perfect autumn day. Near windless conditions and a picturesque, flat calm Cromarty Firth on the outward journey along the shore past Invergordon. Alan, Clifford, Alistair, Katrina, John, Keith (Hinds), Danny, Ian (Milne) and Innis were the lucky cyclists enjoying the ‘last of the summer’ before the clocks change and winter beckons.…

A Character Forming Ride Well, in Fortrose the sky was not looking promising. This did not bode well as Fortrose is on the sunny side of the Black Isle. The leaves were also moving enthusiastically on the trees. Never mind, I thought, although some of RRCC are in Majorca there’s still a club run on…

When Wiggo met Roggo

“Hi there Wiggo how’s the training going for the Olympics?” “Fine thanks Roggo, last bit of intense training before the wind down and then more glory." " How are you doing, it’s 50+ years since you started isn’t it?”......... To read more go to Ride Reports 2016.
