Shattered after that. Bit gutted at my lack of fitness to be honest. How did you lads get on?

From ZZ's strava it looks like it was 4h30 for the second ride. So 3 hours from when we left, but I may be reading the trace wrong. Sore ribs driving home (this is becoming a habit) but better after some ibuprofen.
How was lunch with the old man?

That was a tough bit of climbing! It was at the end less than half though! Its was pretty good all in I reckon, we both said we probably wouldn't be rushing back though. If the ride was the first climb up to Ben Buck then back down into Tillicoutry it would probably be just a as good, addign the other two hills never really added much to the ride. The rest was fairly straight forward but we did get lost at the end. And I won the car park dash :P Cannae thank you all enough though for bailing me out with the bike and I know it had a knock on effect on your day, big load of good karma going out to you three! I've some pics uploading and I'll post them as soon as. :D

feeding time at the zoo lol.

i still dont know how i went down at the start of that climb.

nae bother about the bike loan mate, anytime. Thats the 2nd time my spare bike has came in useful on a ride.

agree not sure if i would rush back, easily one of the hardest climbs i've done.

cracking day out and some grand banter as usual.

looking forward to next weekend (i think).
