September Away Weekend 10th/11th September
(Over 18s Only)


The club is planning an away weekend on the 10/11th September to Portsoy on the Moray Coast. We have booked ‘The Sail Loft’ an independent hostel where we will have sole use of the accommodation.
See link below for more details of the hostel:
https://www.portsoysailloft.org/
The committee have agreed to pay the accommodation and transportation costs. We will however be charging £10/head to cover the evening meal and breakfast at the hostel. This will be on self-catering basis most likely in the form of a bbq for everyone on Saturday night and a light breakfast in the morning.
A van will be hired to bring kit and food over from Inverness so we will be looking for a couple of willing helpers. If anyone fancies driving/cooking/supporting please let us know through the forum.
The routes to and from Portsoy have still to be finalised but will be approx. 6 hours riding each day (150km) with a hillier route out and a flatter route back.

If you would like to sign up for the weekend please indicate in the forum below by Monday 8th August. Please also indicate any dietary requirements. There is no need to pay a deposit as monies will be collected nearer the time.

Marsela and Claire

Myself and Shanthi are in.

We'd be quite interested in having one of the double rooms if possible ... BigGrin

I'm happy to help with the oooking.

Thanks!

Marsela,

Would love to come along on the away weekend.

As I’ve never been to one of these previously could you answer a few questions please?
Is transport provided to hostel or is this just for kit?
If transport is provided for peoples, where do we meet up?
Is it cycling 150k per day and if so will it also include alternative routes? (not sure I’m ready for this distance)

I’m happy to help with anything.

Thanks Carl

Hi Marsela and Claire,
This sounds good fun and I’m certainly interested. I’ve been to this hostel before , very nice clean and modern. Happy to share a room.
If the van is a reasonable size to drive I may offer to drive one direction and cycle the other way. I would however need someone to offer to drive and ride the opposite journeys.

Hi Everyone
Just a quick note with some answers to the various questions raised so far re our weekend away.

The proposed route distances are as follows:
Inverness to Portsoy 92.89 miles/149 km
Portsoy to Inverness 75.36miles/ 121km

There are no plans to offer an alternative shorter ride.

Rooms will be allocated on arrival and can’t be pre booked.

The van is being hired for the transportation of kit and food. If we can get two drivers then each could cycle one way.

Apologies for the edit but I have to change to a tentative yes and won't be able to absolutely confirm till early next week as I may have some other commitment that weekend.

Hi Marsela and Claire,
I’m still keen to involved, but as so many participants I’d actually prefer to drive half a leg so I could ride at least a little on my driving day. Sorry for changing my mind but with so many participants I am hopeful we can have 4 drivers amongst us.
