Sometimes the Scottish weather really pisses me off! Forecast very windy and no rain, 5 miles out I get drenched So now I’m cold and wet, but I press on. It did brighten up a bit but I’m still fighting a 15 mph head wind all the way up to Milton of Campsie. Some crazy hill climbing but I did eventually make it back home, absolutely knackered now 75 miles in 5:42 and 4700 feet climbed.
Quick sprint around the Forth.
Another wet and windy day so did a 30 mile loop around the Falkirk area via Airth, Fallin, down to Denny and Bonnybridge then back to Falkirk. Did it quite quickly too.
Another dull day with patches of rain, just pointed the bike in whatever direction took my fancy.
Given that today was going to be a bad weather day, 20+ mph winds and rain with a tiny bit of sun I decided to do some mountain biking instead as it’s safer. I heard about the Callendar Cycle Trails but have never actually ridden them, so had a go at the 4 routes that exist. I would say they were designed for beginners as they are quite easy and very short, all 4 combined equal 10 miles or so. I added a few bits of my own to bump up the mileage and finished the ride at the Helix next to the Kelpies.
