I thought I’d check out what where the expression, “awa’ the Crow Road” came from before Davie and I headed for the Tour of the Campsies; ‘Crows take your soul to the hereafter it’s thought in many cultures and superstition.’
And on that cheery note we headed for Lennoxtown but not before I’d remembered the gear for a race report, it’s a while since I’ve done one; notepad, pencil, camera, start sheet – kindly emailed to us by organiser, Robbie Martin.
As Robbie’s ‘rider info’ explained;
‘The start line will be marked on the ground and there will be no shuvver.
One foot must be on the ground.’
A great word, wish I’d invented it.
