Brig o Turk and Achray parts have all predominantly been resurfaced so it’s not bad at all now Alan.

That’s be great - thanks Graeme!

Although I think thevreally bad part was more at the Brig O’ Turk/Loch Achray end but......here’s hoping.....!!!

If I remember correctly road surface along Loch Venachar has been replaced with nice new surface.

Hope I'm right not been along there for a while.

Is that a promise about a tailwind home?

3 key factors in planning this week’s route:
1. 15mph westerly wind
2. All day Cross Country event at Kings Park, so need to avoid that side of town
3. We’ve done a few rides up TOTW/Carron Valley recently

So....I’m going for Dukes Pass from North to South. Appreciate the road surface isn’t great along Loch Venachar but hopefully the 15mph tailwind home will compensate!!

Route is here - www.strava.com/routes/16730778

Out via Chalmerston - Thornhill - Mini Braes - Loch Venachar - Dukes Pass - Aberfoyle and back via Thornhill and Micro Braes/Doune/BofA to Corrieries. (54 miles and just under 3000ft of climbing).

Reasonable chance of a shower or two so please bring waterproof jacket as well as the usual food, drink, helmet, spare tube, pump etc.

Please shout up at the Peak if you’re stepping up and you’ll be well looked after - we ride as a group (15-17mph) and no-one left behind!

Alan
