On the longest day of the year, what could be better than riding with a group of like minded buddies, finding a vantage point with 360 degree views and sitting a while to take it all in?
Our summer solstice ride-out starts in Innerleithen and climbs to the summit of Kirnie Law where a derelict concrete structure, once a pumping station for the mills in the town below stands incongruously on the hill-top. A choice of route follows with one option down the famous "Flat White" built specially for last years Shimano Enduro or a gentler descent down some waymarked trails back to the town below.
