Long run planned for Sunday, "the two bridges" at around 85 miles.
Meet at usual spot, 9am. Newmains cross near Asda Newmains, and head north up to the first Bridge, Kincardine. Then follow along the scenic route, heading back across the Forth Road Bridge.
Will have an opportunity to stop for cake and coffee, or a pint and a pie.
For those looking for a shorter run, the option of heading for Linlithgow once you reach Polmont. Then back via the Bathgate Alps, Beecraigs and Cairnpapple then back into Bathgate.

Drop us a note to say hello via Facebook or just turn up at 9am.

On Sunday due to popular demand, the club will visit the Campsie Fells.
Situated a few miles north of Glasgow, the Campsies are the birthplace of skiing in Scotland. (According to Wikipedia anyway, I have my suspicions around the accuracy of this)
So the route heads up to Kilsyth, up the Takmadoon Road and along the carron valley.
Road surface along the Carron valley is a little sketchy, so be careful in the fast sections if this road.
Then its back over the Campsies into lennoxtown, again a fast decent although a decent road surface.
Then head back into the "shire" of Lanark via some roads.
Link to a strava route is here.

Ride Like a Pro 2015
Sunday, 9 August 2015
Law Club Run is Ride Like a Pro, with the route as link below.
Meet at Newmains Cross for 9am as usual, then head to Taggarts at Motherwell for 9:40am, pre match snacks and drinks will be provided by Taggarts/Jaguar. (In exchange for some details and the chance to win a prize.)
The Ride Like a Pro Route is starting at Taggarts, up to Newmains Cross, then out to Carluke, onto A73 to Lanark, up the Red Brae (ouch), then up to Lesmahagow and Sandford via the same route as taken by LW Club on 9th Aug, into Strathaven, then out via Glassford, Quarter, Hamilton and back into Motherwell via the dual carriageway (!!caution here!!) and up Airbles road. Finish off at Taggarts, for cakes and coffee.
Some club members will also be attending the Strathaven 50, which is a fantastic charity run held every year, also starting in Strathaven and going along some similar roads. This has raised a lot of money for local charities over the years - more information here - http://www.roundstraven50.org.uk/
Best of luck to all, and be safe.
