Not trying to be negative here but the Pitlochry route it just as likely to be icy like Dunkeld. Both Dunkeld and Pitlochry are on the banks of Tay so both routes are roughly at same height. The top of Upper Cave Crag isn't exactly at altitude. Can't see route on Pitlochry map as it's too wee and I'm sort of colour blind but if route goes through trees there will still be snow/ice in there. Jeez my back garden is still frozen and I live just outside Kinross. :shock:

Following an interview with tree on Saturday I was unable to attend the Norfolk alps ride at Thetford. :cry:
HOWEVER my personal physio says I will be fit enough to ride next weekend :D


Watch out, I may even bring an old(er) bike to this one.....

Well done SR - I assumed you had been written off for a while.

I hope you have noticed the ride has moved due the Dunkeld being iced up, it will be slightly less epic in location (height wise) but still should be good.

Now in Pitlochry 14 miles up the A9 - carpark at the end of this road...

OCP - When I was at dunkeld there was not much ice in the tree sections it all seemed to be restricted to tracks, I'm guessing because it was compacted by the regular vehicles Ordie gets, the stuff at the sides is the lovely soft crunchy snow we are used to, I expect we will encounter a bit of that.

I've got a couple of pals who live in Pitlochry, I'll find out if there's still any snow on the ground anywhere.
