A following wind

Anne was off to Ochiltree, Ayr and Alloway today so got dropped off at Ochiltree to take advantage of the southerly wind cycling back to WK.

It was quite sunny and warm so enjoyed the wind assisted cycling to Stair, Tarbolton, Galston (the B744 is lovely and quiet for a biggish road) Fenwick, Kilmaurs, Dalry and WK.

On route I stopped off at The Balmoral cafe in Galston and the Gleg Whittle in Kilmaurs.
I was tempted to go the Clunch road north of Fenwick, but would have missed the cafe stop at Kilmaurs and got a head wind back home, so skipped that idea.

Got back about 3pm after 5 hours on the bike, nice outing....view photos here.

Beginning to think that the off road season is nearly over, had a look at some of the trails today, and they were wet, muddy and pretty much lousy.

Yep, i am taking the back roads to Maybole, will follow the cycle route most of the way there, but turn off just before i reach Maybole

Pleased to hear it, are you going to fit slicks or keep the MTB ready for the trails if they freeze up.
