Ben Lomond and Dumbarton Rock

Just back from a road cycle from Castle Semple Loch to Kilmacolm and Kilbarchan, but should have done it anticlockwise as I had to Strain my neck round to see the great views over the Clyde to Dumbarton rock and Ben Lomond. Click here for a route
Just having a coffee the off up Glentane and Kaim on the MTB.

Got back at 5.15. Glentane is a bit muddy and that makes it a bit harder (even scarier), walked up into the Kaim quarry carrying the bike at the steep bits.
The view a the top was great again.
Sat for five minutes getting my breath back then shot off on the downhill track...great fun. Over Goldenberry but looped back into the estate and back up to W.K. for tea, tired but content.

Yeh. It's now mucky enough to look as if its been on there forever.

The road bike spokes wern't so clever though. In trying to have a round wheel I had left some too slack and they made loose spoky noises, had to make the wheel less round to shut it up. May have to invest in a new wheel.

Whoever said that biking was free, obvioulsy never had to buy a new wheel, or in my case, and new chainset
