A lucky day on the bike

Snowdrops in Fularton wood

Graham and I were off to do a route from Troon to Ayr along the coast and then up stream along the river to Failford.
On the way down we passed two road accidents, a car through the crash barrier and one on its roof on the other carriageway, no doubt due to the fresh fallen hail.
However all day we managed to miss the showers, but only just, we followed the new river Ayr path some way but went through Enterkin as it avoids a rubbish section of the new path to Stair.
Soup and coffee and a bit of a warm up at Stair Inn was most welcome before we carried on along the new singletrack to Failford, then to Tarbolton (along a very wet farm track) and back through Monkton.
It was a lovely day out but only because we were lucky to dodge the hail showers.

Is that the new River Ayr Walk you followed.

Was down at Straiton myself, missed all the snow, but Straiton had a light covering of the stuff

The Stair to Failford bit was the new track, the rest was whats always been there.
Bet you found plenty of mud down at Straiton!

Aint that the truth, there was one bit that runs along side the river, to make it a bit more interesting, it was muddy, and slippy, ah but that was not the kicker, its on a camber as well, and you can guess which way the camber was.

Sounds...err.. challenging.
I'm looking forward to a couple of nice days, fingers crossed anyway.
