Postby john.mitchell » Mon Apr 22, 2013 2:21 pm

Just back from the AOMCC Long Distance Run in Bellingham. i153 mile run on the Saturday up to Hawick. Fantastic scenery and interesting road surfaces. Thank you Roger Gwynn for the route and Andrew Grant for the bookings.

I'm glad you posted that as I'd seen a few references to the LDR and wondered what it was... sounds like fun. Looks like you all picked a good weekend for it, hope everyone made it okay.

Hotel was great, and the route was very enjoyable and that part of the world was stunning, great riding territory. My thanks to all who made it happen.

I believe your father completed 50 miles of the Sunday route on Saturday

Nice scenery John...good to see the ride included some gravel roads...there is a small but vocal minority here whos complaints have made organising rallys difficult as they don't like the threat of stone damage to paint-work.

Chris Jane. You probably know that your Dad won the Hard Luck award for doing the 1st 50 miles of the Sunday run on the Saturday I think the guy who followed him for the 50 miles was even more deserving!

Editor John, that's an interesting KH. Is it yours?
Does it have a history?

No it is Lester Grant's. He did it to confuse the experts and at the same time produce a very pleasant bike.
