Gleniffer and Brownside braes

When I called at Walkers cycles in Kilmaurs last week a very helpfull chap directed me to trails on Brownside Braes above Paisley, I went up that way today to check them out.
First I went down to Glen Park and at the south east edge was a trail contouring round to above Brownside farm and up to the top of the hill with fabulous views across Glasgow to the Campsie fells.

While following a not so wonderful trail (ok for walking rubbish for cycling) across to Killoch glen I went over the handlebars and bent my deraileur, some brute force was needed to get it back in line and working before I could get going again.

Eventually found some trail links to make a loop from Glen Park, I'll be adding it to my web page very soon.

Finished off the day by going across the marvellous Brandy burn trail toward Johnstone and looping back on the minor road past Lapwing Lodge.

Got a bit of a bruise to my shin, I sometimes wear shin guards as I've had quite a few bloody shins from peddle bashes.
