Clyde views and Kilmacolm cycle

Tom and I put the bikes on the back of the car today and went up to Lochwinnoch to cycle the little lanes over to Formakin, along the B789 on the south side of the Clyde then up and over the hill to Kilmacolm. This quiet little stretch of road gives great views across to Ben Lomond and the highlands and is a favourite with cyclists from Glasgow.
We weren't disappointed it was a fabulous cycle outing, sunny, warm, and the views were great. The climb over to Kilmacolm was a bit difficult but we got our coffee and cake reward for the effort at Java Minute cafe in the centre of the town.
Then it was back to Lochwinnoch on what can only be called a very undulating set of minor roads happily avoiding the easy but boring cycleway.
Great day.. view the embedded slide show above and get a (similar) route description here.
