Rothesay Weekender










































One event I really miss from Scotland is the season ending Rothesay weekender. That irrespressible mix of trains, ferries & a random Scottish island, the rakish Serpentine hill climb, a couple of drams and over 50 years of history combine to make a bike riding festival like no other. No licenses required, no gearing regulations, no drama! And judging by the above photos circa '57 and '07 not too much has changed in that time, and I doubt much has changed since then either. Now, we just need to find a random Chinese island with fake old buildings and imported whiskey. It'll be just the same- right?!?
