CTC Lothians and Borders would like to invite CTC members to take part in the inaugural Lothians and Borders Rally which will be based at a site on the southern outskirts of Edinburgh at Mortonhall Caravan and Camping Park on Mortonhall Gate.

The rally covers city and rural areas and we hope to offer the opportunity to explore both, with 20, 40, and 60 mile cycle rides on Saturday, Sunday and Monday but participants are welcome to cycle informally on the Friday and indeed extend their stay in to the following week for further exploration. 

Route sheets will be provided and leaders will accompany the rides, with social events in the evenings including meals, quiz, ceilidh and a film.

There is also scope in the area for the use of mountain bikes both on open hill (the site opens on to the Braid Hills and the Pentland Hills are a five-minute ride away) and at the Tweed Valley trail centres.  Scottish access laws mean we can ride almost anywhere provided we do so responsibly.

To find out more information and book your place, please download the Rally Registration form at the bottom of this event page.

We look forward to seeing you there!
