DRG- 1 week to go!

Only a week to go to the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride where thousands of riders around the world don their most dapper clothes and raise funds for prostate cancer and mental health charities.

I'll be riding in the Glasgow Ride again and spent today giving my bike a good clean and polish.

This year I'll have my friend Jane riding pillion and her daughter Summer (age 8) will be doing some home baking for the after ride party.

Weather looks a bit more promising than last year (couldn't be much worse!), so we should have a good time.

Still time to enter, there are hundreds of rides taking place, so there should be one near you. If not, you can donate on my fundraising page.

Holiday cabin for sale

A friend is selling a two bedroom 'off grid' (not connected to services) cabin just outside the town of West Kilbride, North Ayrshire (within walking distance of railway station). Following the birth of a child earlier this year, they've not used the cabin, so it's up for sale.

Cabin consists of an open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area, two bedrooms, and a shower room.

Lounge area with wood burning stove

Kitchen/dining area (Note: cabin has low wattage LED lighting throughout and a battery/inverter power supply system backed up by a remote control diesel generator. The generator usually lives in an outside shed but has been brought indoors whilst the cabin hasn't been in use.)

Bedroom 1

Bedroom 2

Electric shower

Cassette toilet

The cabin has a good, well surfaced access road

Cabin is offered for sale with all furniture, television, cooker, generator, etc as shown in the photos. Well insulated and all windows double glazed. Very good mobile phone signal (mast is about 200m away!), so Internet access available using a dongle. They are looking for offers around £25,000, contact me on including a telephone number and I'll pass it on to the sellers.

You know I'd leave the best to last - here's the view from the window!

View over West Kilbride, Seamill and the Firth of Clyde to the Isle of Arran - impressive!
