I am lucky enough to call the organisers of the sswc 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006 friends. All, at some point, have suggested it would be good to put on in scotland.
This is true, and it will indeed be good.
In addition they have all said it will be tough work. For a race that seems to be free form and random, there has been (i suspect in all cases) an incredible amount of organisation underneath the surface. Our race is no different.
In saying that, as i sit here, tapping away, orgainising, thinking, scheming and worrying, i cant help but smile. I heard today from nick sande of surly and yesterday from jimbo of state college.
It is coming, soon, the time we get (ok, maybe not me...!) to sit, yap, ride and have a beer, somewhere new, meet new folk and just enjoy cycling culture....
