so wednesdays it is- any location ideas? I would be happy to try another run up the back of lakewinnoch over the other side of misty law on the old calder river trail and try that cross-heather-yomp if you are game?

this would be the reverse of what we would do at the start?

sounds fine by me, looks like I'll need to be in the office on Wednesday, meaning that it'll be 6pm+ before I'll be able to get over there

it's getting along the M8 that'll take time, I test the water to see if I can get out of the meetings and I'll have a look / think at lunch-time to see if there's any alternative rides

a half pizza and chips later... no success on tinternet, although I've realised I'm the only rider in west central scotland that hasn't visited mugdock. can't get outta my meeting, but could arrange a sharp exit and with the school hol's should be able to get along the M8 (hopefully) sharp lets do lakewinnoch. i'm good for any bike hike adventure... where'e the meeting point??

The only one I can think of is the run I do in reverse. It doesn't quite reach Kilmacolm.
and it's mostly landrover track. No single track .

I usually start in Canal St , Elderslie , take the cycle path to Bridge of Weir then country road to Hardridge Farm where the landrover tracks start. Take the track over the grouse moor to the Muirshiel visitor centre then a high speed road run down into Lochwinnoch and back onto the cycle track to Elderslie. Its about 26 miles if I remember correctly. Nice run but not singletrack , mostly tarmac actually.
