Ride-ins to Hawick

If you’re planning to ride to Hawick on Thursday and would like to organise a ride-in, send the details to mcn.online@emap.com. And if you’d like to get in touch with any of the people named below, send an email to the same address, with the appropriate name in the subject line.


I have spoken to Inspector Murray of Hawick Traffic Police dept. and the latest arrangements for Steve’s funeral are as follows.

It is planned to set a side the Common Haugh car park in Hawick for bikes. The High street will be closed for the procession to pass and the bikes will be led out of the car park by the police to join the cortege. Weather permitting, and as there is virtually no parking at Southdean, a field will be set aside for parking.

They are aware that many bikers will not only want to pay their last respects to Steve but make it an event and would appreciate it if we could time it to arrive in Hawick as early as 10am.

Might I suggest that all riders coming from the south meet up on the Kilngreen Car park in Langholm, (just north of Langholm on the A7) and ride in together.

Regards. Marco (Bikeaholic). For more details see www.q-scan.co.uk/steve.htm
