I decided to brush of the cobwebs for a bit of alternative training on the bike.
I headed for Cathkin Braes as its local and I wanted to see what the progress was after the Public Consultation meeting the other week.
The plan is to put a graded bike route around and in the park, these will have various loops of various skill levels that can be linked together to give a reasonable distance.
The next phase after that is to then showcase a few events and then build the track for the Commonwealth Games.
Exciting times for Glasgow.
I headed out following a bit of partly built new path this ending into the faint hint of a track that has been cut in the grass to aid planning the routes.
It was a cold wind and I was amazed at how bike unfit I was despite other training and foray’s into the hills.
The Kazoos functioned great as I splashed through the mud.
The tracks that were there have benefited from a bit of branch clearing making it a bit more enjoyable.
The views across Glasgow are great and I could see all the way over to the Kilpatricks.
I contemplated if PTC was up there on the training loop in the mud.
All in all a great wee location for an after work bike and I look forward to the new tracks and obstacles going in that should make it a wee bit more interesting and faster to ride.
Matallica play at the SECC tonight, I was too slow getting tickets ! HARRUMPH !
A manic weekend of work on the water is on the cards despite the snow and cold winds.
