Sun, Jul 3rd 2016, 09:00 Up Tak me Doon and Doon the Crow 83km – 3.5 hours plus café stop. Car Park G66 7AB – Campsie Glen Tearoom and Wheelcraft shop. Start at Clachan of Campsie and turn left onto the A891 to pass through Lennoxtown, then it’s an easy flat 12km warm up before you hit the Tak. What can I say about the Tak?, 6km uphill ranging from brutally steep to gentle and a summit that never seems to appear as you crest and corner your way up. If you are going for a Strava time, note that the car park and viewing area is NOT the top. . Be very careful on the descent as there is a ford near to the bottom which unbelievably runs across the road. At the T junction, turn left onto the B818 and along the shore of the Carron Valley Reservoir. Just at the end of the water, there is a single track road on the right which heads up through the trees. This is Shielbrae and it drags on for for 6km. Stay on this road until you reach Cambusbarron and then it’s a long straight road, the A811 (Cambusbarron TT Route) where a café stop awaits at the roundabout. Then it’s a climbup the A822 across to Kippen. After Kippen, the road forks, take the left and climb to Fintry which has a steep climb out and up onto the Crow Road for a fast descent down into Lennoxtown. At the road end, turn right and head back to Clachan of Campsie.

Sun, Aug 7th 2016, 09:00 Isle of Arran Car Park at KA22 8ED Ferry Terminal 96km – 4 hours plus café stop. Starts at Ardrossan Ferry terminal. (£7.50 return 55 minute crossing) Departs Ardrossan 09.45 as it’s a Sunday, Saturdays are earlier. Returns from Brodick 16.40 and 19.20. So don’t miss the twenty to five boat. It doesn’t matter if you turn right or left from Brodick, it’s a circular loop and you cannot get lost. There are a couple of café stops on the far side at Machrie and Blackwaterfoot. Be assured, there will be plenty of climbing with ups and downs all the way around. The climb at Lochranza is the highest and the toughest by far.

Sun, Sep 4th 2016, 09:00 The Mennock Pass and Transmitter 66km – 3 hours. Car Park at ML12 6RZ - Carlisle Road/Station Road, Abingdon Start at Abington and head back towards the motorway services, then cross the motorway bridge and turn right at the small roundabout and follow the old dual carriageway north for 1 km and turn left for Crawfordjohn. Nice gentle run follows with small lumps and bumps for 30 km along the valley towards the A78. At the road end turn left for Sanquar passing straight though. After 4 km turn left onto the B979 signposted for Leadhills and Wanlockhead. All uphill for the next 25km. Starts very gently but just ramps up steeper and steeper until you reach Wanlockhead itself. Your legs will agree with the signpost telling that it’s the highest village in Scotland. For those that want the kudos, or are plain stupid, turn right at the gated barrier on a single track road and climb to the transmitter, compact or even a triple chain-set is advised. It is a seriously steep climb. Turn around at the top and be careful descending, the road surface is poor in many places. At Wanlockhead, turn right and it’s nearly all downhill for 8km back to the car park at Abington.

Sun, Oct 2nd 2016, 10:30 Winter TT A77

Sun, Oct 9th 2016, 09:00 The Trossachs Grand Tour 152km – 5 to 6 Hours plus café stops. Car Park at G83 8QL – Start at the Loch Lomond Shores car park near to Balloch. Turn left and cross the river Leven on the A811 and head for Drymen, up and over an early climb. Then head across another climb towards Aberfoyle, on the A81. The first real climb starts here a nice climb up and over the infamous Dukes Pass. Stunning views down onto Loch Achray which you cycle round and then head along the side of Loch Venacher, generally towards Callander, However, turn left at the road end onto the A84, not right. Flat section along the shores of Loch Lubnaig and across and down into Loch Earn as if heading for KIllin. This road takes you around behind Ben Lawers, which being the 11th highest UK mountain, you have to pay the price with a tough 5km climb from Loch Earnhead. At the top of the climb it’s then a nice run along to Crianlarich. Turn left just before the Crianlarich hotel and climb over to Inverarnon. From there it’s just a saunter down Loch Lomond side for 40 km back to Balloch.
