Run in the sun

Went for a run today with a few of the Zetland MCC riders. Took my pal Gill on her first bike run for about 30 years.

Went up towards the north of the Shetland Mainland, and up over the hill to Old Collafirth, the headed over to Brae to the uk's most Northerly Chippy for some munchies. South again on almost empty roads, and through the Kergord "Forest" and the Tingwall Valley back to Scalloway. Last photo is Gill and my good lady Jacqui taking in some sun in our yard. 'Twas a good day.

1st photo is Gill and the LT on the Pier in Lerwick
2nd is climbing the single-track hill to Old Collafirth
3rd is the bikes at Old Collafirth
Next is myself & Tim with his ST2 at Frankies Chippy
Then the road between Brae & Voe
6th photo is the "Forest"
7th is the Tingwall Valley

Hopefully winter won't reassert itself just yet........
