Great ride today over at West Linton - completely different landscape to what we're used to over here in the Tweed Valley - but truly stunning. The recent heavy rain meant we were a little challenged by a couple of swollen burns but that didn't stop Eli who smashed straight through the widest and deepest one whilst we looked on in awe!!
Thanks for a great ride Lucy Husband and all the lovely ladies. Really enjoyable - gorgeous route, great company and managed to avoid most of the rain - Miriam
Loved it - perfect way to spend a morning! - Amy
A hardy group of lassies turned out for the October ride-out and despite an initial hour of driving rain and blustery winds we made it round the stunning 25km route to finish with mud-splattered faces at no 1 cafe in Innerleithen.
Thanks to everyone for a great ride and making me feel so welcome - I'll definitely be back - Derna
I loved it - thanks Lucy. Lovely to meet everyone - Anne
Great ride, great company, thanks Lucy - Rachel
Top ride this morning with a small but well matched group for the July ride-out. Raised heart rates up infamous Hammy Hill but fantabulous views, some good descents and good banter. Thoroughly deserving of an afternoon on the sofa eating biscuits!! Thanks girls!
Thank you all for a lovely ride out this morning. Loved it. And great photos Lucy. To all those who pulled out - your loss! It was gorgeous
A little gem of a ride around Portmore Reservoir north of Eddleston for our April ride-out. One to do with the kids or when you're pushed for time and just want to get out on your bike for a "Swifty" Everyone amazed by the size of the reservoir - more like a loch and we could have been somewhere really wild and remote way up north. A nice little extension too on the other side of the valley around The Barony if you just can't get enough!
Thanks for leading the ride this morning. I really enjoyed it. A beautiful route and one that I will try and do again. Looking forward to coming out on another ride soon.
Fab ride, and a great group of friendly ladies. Thanks for a fab ride out!
Our March ride-out took us a little further afield to the beautiful Pentlands south of Edinburgh. We skirted most of the weather - subjected to one soaking on the home leg but enjoyed a great morning in some spectacular scenery.
Thanks Lucy, great route, great group.
Lovely ride. Thanks Lucy. Good to meet everyone.
It was a great ride despite the rain. Thanks for organising Lucy
A fantastic turnout for our first ride-out of 2015. Great to see so many girls on todays ride round Venlaw. Beautiful but chilly day with a few cold toes and fingers! Comfy sofas and warm scones with whipped cream for the warm-up afterwards in the Tontine. There surely can't be many pursuits more fun on a Sunday?
Thank you Lucy. Great ride today. Hope I can make more of these this year. A good start to 2015!
Thanks for your help getting us down the more tricky bits Lucy, it was a good ride.
Thank you Lucy - a great day to be out, and a good route
Lots of happy faces! See y'all next time!
Thank you for organising todays ride. I reckon me and ALison will be back! It was great meeting you all and thanks for all your help
Sometimes on these cold, damp November mornings its not easy to get on your bike and get out for a pedal but when you find yourself riding through stunning autumnal painted landscapes, chatting with friends, munching on Green & Blacks chocolate by the side of an amazing Victorian boathouse and then winging it down the hill for coffee and cakes in Innerleithen you realise it really is worth the effort! A fabulous morning with smiley, mud splattered faces to prove it!
"Fantastic morning biking with great company. Thank you Lucy Husband from Swift Trails. Roll on the next one!"
We had the weather on our side and a helpful South Westerley wind for our October ride-out along the stunning John Buchan Way from Broughton to Peebles. Great group of girls, jaw-dropping scenery, plenty of banter and no falls or mechanicals! Some comments below from those who came along and a few pics too.
"Fantastic ride. Looking forward to the next one already!"
"Was stunning. I may be a bit stiff tomorrow! Thank you Lucy - very good leader."
"Great day biking Lucy, fantastic trail, was so tired I missed the whole of Saturday night! Worth it though. Thanks"
"Absolutely loved it Lucy. Thank you for an awesome ride with brilliant company and sooo can't wait for the next one."
