Another very cold and frosty start this morning so I decided to ride to Gartgosh it wasn’t too far and I new my way without having to map a route. The leg out was up to Shieldhill and along to Slamannan but I was riding against the wind which made a cold day even colder with the wind chill. Suffice to say my hands and feet were cold numb and a little painful, I even had to put on a forth layer of clothing which I carry in my camelbak for said occasions. Thankfully once I hit Gartgosh I would have a tailwind and my feet and hands were able to warm up a little bit. Took the road to Westfield home as it was a little bit hillier which would also help me to warm up so by the time I got home I wasn’t a popsicle
Its a cold day but no frost thankfully so I decided to take a router over the Campsie Fells, going from Falkirk to Lennoxtown and up Crow Road. This to me down to Fintry and Kippen and the A811 which I rode along to Stirling. It was then up to Bannockburn and then back to Falkirk clocking up 53 miles.
