The Kilt Ride 2016


Kilt Ride Flyer

The time has flown by and the Kilt Ride 2016 – the world’s first ever large-scale awareness and fundraising event for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks – is almost upon us. This fantastic two-day event, organised by Ray Michael for Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May 2016, will see up to 100 tartan-clad bikers travel around Scotland, from the Borders to the Highlands, in support of CSF leaks.

The convoy will depart the Leadburn Inn, Midlothian, at 09:00 to the sound of bagpipes and the taste of bacon butties, making its way to the second rendezvous point at Tesco Extra Perth, Edinburgh Road for 11:30. Thereafter, it will make its way through Fife, Perthshire through the Spittal of Glensheeand and into the Cairngorms. The overnight  stop will be at Dores, on the banks of Loch Ness, before travelling back south the following day, via Glen Coe and Bannockburn.

We are sure that the event will be a roaring success and would like to thank Ray for his dedication and support, and for all of the hard work that he has put in over the past 6 months to make it a reality. We would also like to thank The Dores Inn, the Leadburn Inn, Saltire Motorcycles and Alba Customs for supporting the event. Event t-shirts and raffle tickets (with some fantastic biker-related prizes) will be available to buy at the Dores Inn on the Saturday evening.
