Another plan would be to start/finish at Kenmore but just go out Glen Lyon and back again the same route, which in my opinion is the most scenic part and avoids the Big Hill :xmas-cool:

Probably much the same as the mtb rides. Or at least that's what I'm counting on! :D

Like 2/3rds riding and 1/3rd yappin' 'n rippin' the pish? That's generally the ratios I'm happy with. :mrgreen:

I think the fact that we have no idea what we average shows how much we care about "fast". :)

Banter aside my question has not been answered.

What weekends in October are most favoured by you guys.

Any Saturday is fine for me :wink:

I'm not going to be on a bike for a good while yet due to ligament damage. I'll count myself lucky if I can ride by the end of October :(

Meanwhile the autumn colours explode all around Fortingall 8)
