So here we are again having a go up Glen Finglas, the last time I did this was on the Evans Cycles Calendar Ride It event back in March. It was such a brutal ride it killed me twice over, thankfully this time I wouldn’t be doing 40 miles off road on top. I drove to the start of the path leading up the hill and rode the 15 miles up and down the hill without too much incidence. It’s still a brutal ride especially the last 100m up the path to the summit, still had to push the bike up that bit, but this time at least I was able to ride up 90% of the hill to the top A much better ride and experience this time round. Thats twice I’ve done the clockwise route, I’ll need to do the anti-clockwise route one day.
Quick ride to Shieldhill, Slamannan and Cumbernauld and back home.
Doing some mountain biking around the side of the Ochils just so I can mark some of the routes up there. Hopefully I can build up decent set of routes to tackle the hills with.
So did the same Ochils loop as 2 weeks ago but this time a little more successfully. Weather forecast was for a cloudy possible wet day, it actually turned out to be a very nice sunny day.
