Well done to the 18...... Yes, 18 riders in the group today. So big we had to split it in half.
A tough route, a wee bit rough in places, (but worth it to escape the traffic), with a lot of climbing and a strong breeze. You all deserve some cake tonight!
(I have some video footage that I'll upload and link over next few days.)

Some parts are ok and some parts are a bit patchy - Not unlike almost every other road in the area Craig!

Despite climbing to TOTW on almost every training ride I did last year I didn't know this road existed! Does it have a better surface than once it crosses the Fintry road and heads to Balfron?

Folks,
I am leading the Development Group this week.
I propose something a wee bit different. A wee bit of climbing involved, (but not as much as last week!), on a road we don't use that much. A wee bit over 36 miles in total.
The route is HERE
Please come prepared. The forecast is for light showers, so dress appropriately and bring fluids, snacks and pennies for milkshakes at Corrieris!
The pace will be an average of 13-14mph and nobody will get left behind.
