Few weeks ago the SD Team was hosted in the Scottish Border region by a lovely couples. Kevin & Trish.
My visit was aimed to explore the lovely area and to meet the amazing Peebles Cycling Club during their annual Hill Climb Race.
On Saturday morning a couple of us from the SaddleDrunk Team flew to Edinburgh. We directed ourselves South, about 1 hour drive in the astonishingsceneries to reach a little place called Broughton.
The cottage was hidden deeply into the nature, the only sound waves were from the dogs welcoming us and the essence of the flowers was blown toward us by the a gentle breeze.
After a nice quick homemade soup and a bacon batty,we hit the road.Within few minutes I was stunned by the lovely roads and all the surrounding factors.
KC & PJ decided to take us to do the Talla an amazing place not far from their location. For them it was just an everyday ride. Talla had an interesting sign at the start, 20% advisory road sign. WOW,it was a nice tasty climb with a 39-23 was nice to challenge for 2.5km.
After reaching the top,we stop to wait for the boys at the back and a couple of panoramic shots.
We, then carried on and to be honest with you, there are not enough words to describe the scenery and the peace that this location was sending to us "Concrete Jungle Residents".
The following it was the time for the Annual Social Hill Climb for PCC. This Time Trial Climb Race was before a Sunday Social Ride.
It was beautiful to sit in the pack with the club members to listen their stories and experiences on the 2 wheels.
The SD team is pleased to announced that we are now one of the 2 kit suppliers for Peebles Cycling Club.
PCC organise various sportive around the area,therefore you should look into this for 2016 season to take part.
Love the roads,BE SAFE,BE SEEN.
Ciao from the SD Team.
