Chips and Warheads

Another sunny Sunday, another shoreline spin. From Kilmuirs to Largs, nice fast roads, (even though we went no faster than the speed limit.) Largs on a dry Sunday is always busy, and you have always got other keen bikers coming up to chat to you about your bike, bike clothing, bike trips, bike modifications and... Continue Reading →

South, to a castle

Easter Sunday, haven't been a good run all year, so decide to head south. I haven't ventured south much on the bike, except for a run down to Stranraer. Started from McDonalds at the Bellfield Interchange, (eh! had a coffee, honest) Got onto the A76 and followed it all the way to Dumfries, for a... Continue Reading →

A wee Arran run

A long time being talked about, finally got the ferry booked to go to Arran. It didn't disappoint, it turned our to be a nice sunny day, and because it was during the week, it was pretty quiet too. Once off the ferry we headed south to Lamlash, a small village that has beautiful views... Continue Reading →

A Wee Trident Run

A wee late night run to Arrochar, decided to avoid the Loch Lomond route and headed up through Cardross, Helensburgh and Rhu. The road leads up the side of the "infamous" Faslane, where the subs dock with the trident missiles, but you don't see much except lots of fence and barbed wire. Lucky that this...

Loch Jumping

Starting, by crossing the River Clyde, over the Erskine Bridge and heading for Dumbarton, Cutting up North on the West side of Loch Lomond. I don’t mind keeping in with the slow traffic on this road, as the views... Continue Reading →

Coffee to Ice Cream

Thought I’d abandon the obligatory bag of chips for this run. Apart from the fact it was warm, it was only 10 in the morning, so I went all continental and got myself a coffee. Drinking my coffee and sitting on a bench in Largs, watching the ferry leave and take people across to Great... Continue Reading →

The North Way Round Part Four

The end of a (not so) wee run. Woke up to the sound of silence, typical, this was the last day. I'd had fun in the highlands, and seen places I'd wanted to see. Today wasn't just heading home though, we had tickets to go on the "funicular railway" at the Cairngorm Mountains. So, it... Continue Reading →

The North Way Round Part Three

Day three started the same as day two, with the rain hitting off the roof of the caravan, but it didn't last, and when I looked up at the sky, I could see a strange blue colour behind the grey that had followed us around the day before. Today we were heading for John O'Groats,... Continue Reading →
