A spring cycle

Tom phoned this morning and we agreed it was too nice a day to let pass so we put the road bikes on the car and headed down to Eglinton Park, one of my favourite start points.
There's lots of route choice from the park, today we were taking quiet lanes over to the RSPB centre at Lochwinnoch a round trip of about 60km.
The RSPB is a lovely place to stop for some lunch, a warm up, and a spot of bird watching, they have a self serve coffee machine and some tasty little cakes.
On route to the RSPB we cycled up to Barcraigs reserviour and were rewarded with a marvellous view north to snow covered Ben Lomond and further again to Ben More.
Cycling back to Eglinton Park with a following wind and the sun on our faces really made it feel like spring, lets hope it lasts.

Similar route here but a little shorter.

Some Lochwinnoch pictures here.
