We're having summer right now in Norn Iron. Beautiful clear skies, tho' the -0 temperatures aren't exactly encouraging !!

Welcome.........

Good luck exploring the infinite abyss

The little tab at the bottom of the photo tells me to report this image. I'm here to report that's one mammary - sorry, mammoth - image.

Welcome from a Dubliner in San Francisco. I really want to see the Ulster Grand Prix some year soon, won't have a bike though. Might make it this year.

Going on a ride tomorrow to do a hike. Probably 65F.

Welcome!!

I would love to go riding in Scotland or Ireland but I presume the best thing to do is get over there and rent a bike. Wonder how complex it would be move the bike from SF to Scotland.

A member (tap) on versys.co.uk just arrived in London and is waiting on his bike to be delivered from California, maybe get in touch to find out some info on transporting.

EatSleepRide did a post on an N.Ireland coastline ride and I saved the link.

Nice Versys road at 4m30s.
