Windy wobbles

View from Caldron

Anne and I took a strole in Kelburn yesterday morning but were unlucky enough to be caught in a shower at the furthest point, fortunately it didn't last long so we didn't get drookit.
I needed to do a spot of shoppping in Largs (Anne's birthday) so we had lunch at Craigmiles before I did the necessary.
PM the sky was looking reasonably bright so I got out on the MTB and took a fancy to go over Caldron hill (1200ft) it's a bit of a carry but the views are lovely and the short ridge on the top is great fun.
On the way out over Glentane it was a bit windy for comfort on the narrow trail, causing all sorts of wobbley scares on the steep slope, but managed to stay upright thankfully.
On the return loop from Caldron I went over Glentane summit for a change and tackled the rutted and muddy downhill to Glen burn, unusually there were too other MTBers on the route behind me, I stopped to watch before zipping down the lower downhill and meeting Jim coming out from work.
A very satisfying afternoons outing.
View the route here.

PS have now generated a web page for our visit to Spain, view it through this link.

There's plenty of scope up here so use is not a problem, if it was I wouldn't have a MTB web site, it's nice to see folk out and about.
