Back on the bike !


With winter deciding not come after all I decided that it was spring and started working on Leroi to get him and I race fit !

Friday was a loop around Mugdock and then onto the old pipe track to Strathblane which was surprisingly clear of windfall.

But on return to Mugdock there was a lot of trees down and a route change had to be made !

Saturday We planned to go for a spin up to the top of Farragon Hill outside Aberfeldy but the snow was still low down in the valley.

Mark and I opted for Griffin forest for a quick hack before work !

Instead of that we ending up wading through snow carrying bikes.

The weather was not too bad and in the trees you could have been in the Alps or Canada.

Having to pedal hard downhill just to keep the bike moving was a bit de motivating !


What should have been a quick forty minute hack became an hour and a half toe freezer !

Sun was a bit of exploring a newish track to Kenmore from Aberfeldy.

The ground was muddy so there was a lot of pushing involved !

A bit of lunch in The Courtyard put smiles on faces again as we returned via the back road which was a bit flooded.

All good fun !

If it stays like this the road bike will be coming oot as well !
