CTC Lothians and Borders would like to invite CTC members to take part in the inaugural Lothians and Borders Rally which will be based at a site on the southern outskirts of Edinburgh at Mortonhall Caravan and Camping Park on Mortonhall Gate.

The rally covers city and rural areas and we hope to offer the opportunity to explore both, with 20, 40, and 60 mile cycle rides on Saturday, Sunday and Monday but participants are welcome to cycle informally on the Friday and indeed extend their stay in to the following week for further exploration.
