Well I've done the Tak-Ma-Doon/Crow Road circle and it wasn't as bad as I expected but it wasn't as easy as I would have liked it to be
Glasgow to Kilsyth, along the Tak-Ma-Doon Road to Fintry and onto Crow Road and over the Campsie Hills, a quick visit to Big Al at Wheelcraft and a short stop at my mother-in-laws in Milngavie before heading home
Total of 56.2 miles with an elevation of 3743 feet...That.s a lot of climbing for an old geezer like me that's just getting back into cycling
This was the anticlockwise route
With plenty CAT 3 & Cat 4 climbs, this is the Tak-Ma-Doon climbs
Today's forecast said a 20% chance of rain and it didn't disappoint...
While I was in the Campsies I was cycling amongst the clouds, it was cool and damp, but the worst was leaving Glasgow heading home, I turned along the River Clyde and the heavens opened up, by the time I arrived home I was rather soggy
Great fun all the same
