SBC INTERMEDIATE RIDE - Saturday 08 August
07 Aug 2015 08:46 #2899
Hi Martin, the traffic has been increased on the Hillfoots road due to the Collylands Road closure. If you need to get a steady big group off the main drag and especially the Dollar Bends the cycle path from Alva to Tilly is fine and then Tilly to Dollar is all Tarmac too. You can either use this or either re-join the Fishcross road by turning right at the east end of Alva and left at the top, or up the Birkie Brae after Sterling Mills in Tilly to join at Coalsnaughton. (Watch out for Del Boy doing secret Reps on this one!)
I'm proposing the Intermediate Group Ride for this Saturday which is to head out eastward over Cliesh and Knockhill. Some hills and fast decents to occupy the mind and body!!!!
Weather forecast at the moment is looking pretty good for Saturday, at least it should be dry with a slight breeze.
Proposal is to head out eastward along Alloa Road and avoiding the roadworks to the east of the King O Muirs Road, turn left to Alva then right along the Hillfoots Road, on passed the Yetts, cutting across to Drum and on to, and up over, Cliesh returning via Knockhill to Powmill, left along the A977 then right to Vicars Bridge and back via the Hillfoots Road to a comfy seat in Corrieris for an espresso or two.
Just under 50 miles at an easy average of around 15mph.
