The Usual Suspects are thinking about these rides


Bucket  List

Ride Description




Coll, Tiree - via Oban Jenny    
Donegal (via Derry) Jenny    
Isle of Mull Sportive Jenny    
Tummel & Tay Deke    
Peebles <--> Innerleithen, Car Deke    
Peebles <--> Tweedbank, Train Deke    
Adnamurchan,  Mallaig and the lost village of Smirisary Jim    

Caledonia Way - Campbeltown to Inverness on NCN78.

At 237 miles it is probably too far for one long weekend but could be done over two maybe at different times of the year.

Takes in Kintyre, Oban, Fort William and Inverness.

DG 237  
Dunkeld & Dundee Dawn    
Pitlochry & Dundee 2 days Deke    
Dunfermline to Dollar via the Millenium Link Graham/Jim 50-60  
East Lothian Figure of 8 for 2019. Fisherow to Fisherow is about 65 miles, goes to Aberlady, East Linton, Garvald, Dunbar, East Linton again, North Berwick and back to Aberlady and Fisherow. DG 65  
West Linton


Carstairs to Berwick. I think Tweedbank to Berwick is already on there, this would extend that to a weekend, 105 miles, 55 Carstairs to Melrose, then 50 Melrose to Berwick. 


Get the train to Berwick, cycle to Tweedbank, get the train back
