Nice route. I grew up there, in fact half way up the 1:5 hill at Loch Striven....It’s a pretty unexplored area, but the view of the Kyles of Bute on the way to Tighnabruaich is stunning. Enjoy!

Away day on Cowal Peninsula. 80 or so miles.

Details below.
I can transport 2-3 other riders.
Cowal Peninsula

Course Link In Garmin

Park on A770 junction with Ashburn Gate as there are toilets on the front. See Directions Link . Check the parking restrictions I think it is ok.

Meet at McInroys Point Ferry Terminal around 5mins cycle from parking. (The terminal has no facilities and very limited parking)
Timetable
Catching 09:50am Ferry. Ferries are every 20mins. Will go earlier if others up for it. I have bought 10 tickets(yes I am an optimist) which workout at £4.62 return or you can buy on ferry for £9.30. Fare Info

Lunch in one of the eaterys or the shop in Tighnabruaich roughly halfway. Public Toilets here too. In fact very civilised part of the world on the public convenience front.
It is a day in the saddle. Two bottles which will need refilling, snacks, usual riding in Scotland paraphernalia(waterproof), couple of tubes.
Please inspect and change break blocks in advance if they look to be near the end of their life. Make sure your tyres are in good nick as we are quite remote.
Road surfaces were (2018) generally very good with lots on new tar. Some of the decents are technical and I will be urging caution. I hit 41mph somewhere on the route (not sure where as I think my eyes were closed at the time).

Nobody abandoned start and finish as a group. I averaged a solo 15mph so not exactly pushing it.
Today Lorenzo asked about the pace of the ride I think it was tongue in cheek but let me re-iterate after todays performance (er lack off) it will defo not be "TEMPO" more "Lentando"-in fact this could be the name of a new group in the club:) . Away day is more of a social and all I have been on have been that way.
So stop just looking!
