Fortunately Gregg's Heckler was on hand for a top road trip to

led by Andy Armstrong (said hero) will set off from Edinburgh on a journey that
will take them through the Scottish Borders, Northumberland and the Yorkshire
Dales, finishing in Todmorden on the Yorkshire-Lancashire frontier seven days
later. They are doing this for two reasons: to have a fantastic time, and to
raise money for Epilepsy Scotland.

On the question of being a
Plumster, were are a race team and as such welcome all riders interested in
being a part of our social scene at races. It's important to us that all our
riders know each other, we are not a cycle club as such and can't offer the
usual club benefits of regular rides or meets. Performance is irrelevant,
taking part is what we are after, and enjoy.
