New Border Raid - food/water stops
« on: July 03, 2018, 02:11:29 pm »
In planning for this ride I have identified the following food/water stops in addition to the controls.
I have used Google maps and Streetview but i cann't guarantee if they are all still open.
But might be of use to others.

93   Longtown           Shops
99   Gretna Green   Shops
111   Annan      Tesco

182   New Galloway   Shop/Café

320   New Cumnock   Coop
463   Philliphaugh   Café open 10:00

I'm quite looking forward to it

May need to plan to stop in a pub on Sunday around 16:00 for a couple of hours.
Alnwick, Ulgham or Morpeth are all possibilities.
Could be my "first full value ride"

Don't be too late for the post ride party at Kirkley!
From experience, House of Meg is slow. Crocketford shop is 'limited'. Eglingham pub is up its own A.

Bring your own breakfast to start, cafe open for drinks only.
