What? its not raining?

The weather people got it wrong again its a lovely day out there so its time to get the bike out.

By the time the bike was out it was looking dull again but what the heck, just cycle and see what happens. Thought I'd do a 2.5 hour loop just in case it all went wet but at the turning point behind Dalry it was brightening up again so continued up to Howwood past Bargraigs reservior and back along to the RSPB at Lochwinnoch.

The new track from lochwinnoch to the RSPB centre is open and its much more pleasant from the Lochwinnoch side, however the bit up to the station isn't finished so it still has to be done on the busy road. Hope it improves soon.

Took the little lane behind the station (sort of) to Beith, Dalry then half way up Fairlie moor before turning down to the Munnoch and back to WK.

There is an ugly scar on the landscape up where they are constructing a new track to allow the wind farming machinery access to the hills above Dalry. The hedges have been ripped up and the tarmac widened with a rubble road, what a mess! Hope it all gets put right when the're finished.

I am looking forward to getting up there on the mountain bike when its all done.
The Busby windfarm tracks are fun and the one behind Dalry should open up a bit of ground which ain't much use for anything but sheep.
