Around Kilmaronock

Loudoun church near Galston

I was born and brought up in Kilmarnock and cycled for years and years around its little country roads before moving to west Kilbride and later discovering mountain biking, (after hill walking, rock climbing, winter mountaineering, cross country skiing, munro bagging, running, orienteering, backpacking - basically all things outdoors not on water).

Anyway today was a trip down memory lane, Tom and I did a very nice little loop around Kilmarnock starting at Kilmaurs and stopping off for coffee/tea and cakes at Galston and Hays (garden centre).
We didn't need to but the idea was too appealing to pass up.

The loop is 33miles and today with cool clear air and sunshine it was great, not as clear as a few days ago but still lovely.
Finished up at 3pm late enough that I didn't feel compelled to nip out on the mountain bike for a couple of hours, just had a cider out front in the sun.
Great day out.
