Intermediate Group Ride – 10am on Sunday 14th April 2019
My turn to lead this week’s Intermediate Group ride leaving The Peak at 10am.
Given the weather forecast & in an attempt to stay out of the way of Mr B for as long as possible, then I have planned a ride that will take in 52miles of beautiful Perthshire countryside & what Garmin Connect tells me is less than 2500ft of ascent. The route takes us over Sheriffmuir from Dunblane to get the bulk of the climbing out the way early. We’ll then head from Blackford towards Braco, then take the back roads skirting Muthill to bring us back over Comrie Moor from Culloch. We’ll then come back via Braco, Dunblane, BofA & Cambuskenneth to Toast for some well-earned sustenance!
We will aim for a pace between 14-15mph avg, although as always we will ride at a pace that suits the group with no-one left behind.
Bring the usual food, drink, spare tubes, levers, pump, multi-tool, mandatory helmet, café money and SUMMER BIKE! We are expecting it to be dry with sunny intervals, 5-9deg C with a breeze so bring layers as it may be chilly in the shade.
I’ll aim to be at The Peak early, so shout up if you are stepping up for the first time or haven’t been out for a while so I can make sure you’re well looked after. Please also can you let me know if you’re a First Aider or have any medical conditions which I should know about!
See you Sunday (if not before)
