I just wanted to share some information with you about the SUW and its passage by Mountain Bike. Over the last two years I have really enjoyed exploring the trail on my bike, doing sections of it at a time. Last July I rode the entire SUW from Portpatrick to Cockburnspath. Long distance endurance riding is something that I am used to doing, as are a small(ish) but growing group of other riders within the UK and beyond ...sometimes know as bike-packers. To provide ideas, inspiration and recognition the webpage below has been created and it lists a small number of Long Distance routes available for would-be riders to challenge themselves against. http://selfsupporteduk.net/
Now your chances of seeing this from the Nith at Sanquhar are Nil , Nada, Zilch - but if you squint REALLY hard downstream from Sanquhar, your chances would increase to around Diddly Squat
I saw this at Glencaple at the mouth of the Nith as it meets the Solway today while working on footpath boardwalks. A D&G natural phenomenon. The hill in the background is Criffel
Well done to Karen Kemish from Aberystwyth and Stewart Wilson from Innerleithen, you've won a Harvey's SUW map each! Thanks to everyone else who entered and to Harvey's for supplying the maps. Your maps will be sent out today . Happy exploring!
