More East Ayrshire

On the MTB today from Galston to Eaglesham, part 4 of my East Ayrshire route.
This section is quite short, I decided to do a loop back round Whitelee forest doing a figure of nine rather than have Anne do a car shuffle.
Highlights of the day were the out and back singltrack from Galston along the river Irvine to Newmilns and a great fast rough descent out of Whitelee down to Carrot with a great view over Glasgow to the Campsies and Ben Lomond, low point was the slog up a wet ditch at Overmuir Farm fortunately it was short and easier (downhill) on the way back.
I met a walker and got chatting, he was curious about the track out to Fenwick and I got some useful information about Uddingston and Calder Glen tracks for the future round Glasgow MTB trail I've been thinking about.
All together a very nice four and a half hours of cycling although there was at least as much road as off road.

A Glasgow MTB trail, that would take days to cycle around, but boy, it would be fun, expecially as they have the MTB trail in Pollok Park, amd if they get the Commonwealth Games, they are planning on building another MTB trail for that

I have figured out the north side and the south side but still have to check out the link. Its a two day route starting Mugdock and ends at Johnstone or Kilmacolm if the link works out that is.
