Brave souls turned out for the 2018 Chairman's run on 7th January. Lovely bright sunny conditions, the only downside being a temperature of -8 degrees. Sensibly we opted for a shorter route but did get to practice our ice riding skills.
An interesting meeting of all the VMCC Scottish sections at Doune on 28 October. Clyde Valley was well represented with 4 committee members attending. Clyde Valley were also the only ones to turn up on motorcycles. Did we feel superior? Were we smug? Certainly not.
As well as classics, Clyde Valley added veterans to the Reivers crossing of the new bridge. John MacMillan even bravely wrestling the VMCC's 1903 Dreadnaught through the junctions and traffic.

A great if somewhat damp day out. John McMillan admires Tim Ryan's newly restored Rudge. George Martin in the fetching shorts cycled out from Peebles to see us off - and ended up driving the sweeper van. We are pleased to report that there were no problems or incidents throughout. The sound of all these singles and a Ducati twin climbing up the 1 in 5 from Talla to Meggat must have been quite something.
Clyde Valley was well represented at the wet, foggy Bamburgh run. Here Gordon Johnston on his 2 3/4 HP Douglas is hotly pursued by John MacMillan on his Rudge Multi.
The 2016 Tiddler's Tootle attracted over 70 entries and was rewarded with glorious weather. Once again, the sweeper van collected the traditional MZ.

Smiling faces at the lunch gathering on 19th October 2014
The sun shone for the Sound of Singles. Great roads, great scenery and very little traffic to contend with. As good as it gets.
The Rock 'n Roll run attracted a good entry and was rewarded with ideal riding weather, all the better to appreciate the superb route. Bikes pictured at the Leadhills lunch stop and at the off.
The Tiddler's Tootle on 25 May attracted a big entry and was a resounding success with a fascinating and varied array of bikes taking part. An almost trouble-free run, with nothing more than a battery transplant required.
Geoff Brazendale made it from Cumbria to our Abington checkpoint during the Founder's Day Relay Rally on 4 May. A great ride on the Sunbeam!
Chairman's run 5 January 2014
Despite the dreadful forecast, a dozen bikes turned up for an enjoyable winter ride. Here are just a few of those present.

It rained - boy, did it rain. But that didn't stop 17 riders and 2 pillions having a great day out on some excellent roads. (Typing with a cat biting my fingers - please excuse any mistakes. Ouch). Pictures taken at the start at Crossford before the rain got going.
