Sorry, Thanks & Scotland.

Firstly apologies for a problem with the Newsletter last Month which meant a few of you had problems opening the page.  This has now been rectified and this should now be problem free.

And now a Big Thank you to all who supported the Teddy Bear Run to the Heath Hospital.  We delivered over a thousand Bears & their friends to the Children’s Casualty Unit.  Fantastic  & Thank You a thousand times.

 Scotland, Scotland, Scotland.  We are about to close the list for ‘The Scottish Splendor Tour. 2013.  24th – 27th April.’

This is your last chance to get on the list for this trip.  We need to finalise our accommodation requirements so if you want to join us please contact Russ who is managing the arrangements, and get your deposit in.  Russ@1stclassrider.co.uk

We are currently up to about a dozen participants on this trip but can still fit in a couple more.

This trip will be lead by our Scottish Expert, Russ who is a highly skilled rider and had passed the RoSPA Test to the highest level. Also well able to pass on his skills as an Advanced Tutor in the RoSPA Group.  He knows how to ride….. and he knows how to ride in Scotland! Russ was recently voted ‘RoSPA Group Member of the Year’ beating nominations from across the UK.  (I’ll be relaxing at the back for a change on this trip).

This trip will consist of riding arguably some of the best roads in Europe and undoubtedly the best in the UK. Russ says, “For me the Scottish Highlands is the best all rounder bike trip anyone can wish for.  The mixture and high quality of roads, scenery, view points, cafes and restaurants etc all add up to making this an amazing trip”.

Accommodation has been secured for four nights at Kelso, Skye, Ullapool and Drymen.

The cost of this amazing trip is just £295 per person and included in that price you will get;

2 x nights accommodation = bed, breakfast and 3 course evening meal. (Wednesday & Saturday).

2 x nights accommodation = bed and breakfast. (Thursday & Friday).

1 x Trip Information Pack & Tank Bag Map.

2 x Experienced Tour Guides.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the famous 1st Class ‘foreign’ Tours but with out the need to get your ‘Euros’ first.

The last trip was a sell out so get your name on the list as soon as possible.  To get on the list please email Russ@1stclassrider.co.uk as he is handling all the bookings for this one.

A deposit will be required and this will be explained by a return email.  To get an idea of fuel costs for your bike the trip will cover approximately 1,600 miles.

Seaside, Mountains, Lakes, Lochs, Highlands, Islands, haggis and deep fried Mars Bars!

Join Us.  This really is your last chance as we have to close the list with the Hotels and B & B’s.  Don’t miss out.

Come on….. you know you want to…….
