Susan, this needn't change the map, but I have been thinking about the "Finish Line" I think it might be better to stop at the major cafe in Centennial Park rather than the bike-riders' cafe, mainly because there are toilets. What do you think?

Hi Madam,

I've heard the big cafe doesn't like cyclists as we leave our bikes round and clomp in our shoes..can anyone confirm this?

That is why I had the finish for the smaller cafe. The toilets are still pretty close and as we'll do a lap of the park first there are a few toilets that can be seen from the main lap so people can see those ones.

Does that make sense?

OK, point taken. But I would suggest we do the lap of the park first and give everyone a chance to use the toilets before going to the caravan cafe.

Yep a full lap of the park before we stop has always been in the plans so that will work out well for everyone.

Hey hey everyone,

you may have seen me at the start of the Tweed Ride taking photos. I've uploaded these photos to a Flickr group, which I'd love you guys to check out:

More importantly though, there were many photographers there this morning, so if you'd like to add your photos to the group, please do so - would be great to have all the photos in one handy spot :)

All my shots are added under a Creative Commons non-commercial share-a-like attribution license, which basically means you can do whatever you like with the photos so long as it's not for commercial gain. If you're interested you can read more about this here:

If you join the group you can also tag the photos and edit the descriptions, which would be really helpful :) Also, if anyone wants to become an administrator or a moderator on the group with me, just let me know and I'll make that happen.

Thanks everyone - you looked amazing and I hope the ride went really well :)
