What, I often find myself asking in quiet moments of solitude, could be better than dangling precariously above a fast flowing river on a tiny bit of rope slackly suspended between two sides of a gorge?
The answer, I inevitably conclude, is absolutely nothing.
That is why I am most confident you will really, really enjoy Saturday’s Courier as we bring you news of the innovative craze sure to get the adrenaline flowing.
But be warned, it is not the faint-hearted.
If subjecting yourself to high levels of danger is not your weekend bag then please don’t abandon ship at this early stage, there is so much more sure to entertain, entice and indeed enrich.
We also have all the latest ahead of a massive weekend for Stirling. In fact massive doesn’t do it justice. MASSIVE is probably more applicable. Both Armed Forces Day and Bannockburn Live are set to be staged. Thousands will be descending on the city. An economic boon, economic boost and economic fillip are all confidently predicted.
Meanwhile, Dundee celebrated its very own big day on Friday as the Queen’s baton relay was held. There was unconfined joy on the streets which was jolly nice. We have all the pictures and reports you could hope for.
And if you haven’t already made a Bolt for Commonwealth tickets, you may be disappointed.
That may leave you intrigued or possibly even inquiring “What are U sain?”. Well, you will have to read The Courier to find out (unless you have managed to decipher my fiendish clues).
Still on using your legs to do astonishing things, we are gearing up for the Cateran Yomp a 52 mile trot around Perthshire and Angus. Hundreds are set to take part over the weekend. We find out more.
The World Cup may have a had a rest day on Friday but it is back with a bang (but hopefully no bite) on Saturday as the eagerly-anticipated knock-out stages get underway.
Courier sport looks ahead…
