Atop the Campsies midweek ride

Plan is to leave carpark beside Big Al’s Wheelcraft / Campsie Glen coffee shop (Postcode: G66 7AB) at 7:45, and cycle/push up behind bikeshop, over Crow Road carpark, up to the top of the Campsies.  Then navigate along the top via Cort-ma Law to Meikle Bin, then loop back and enjoy the long grassy descents whilst catching midges in our wide grins!  This ride is great on a clear night – you can see the Forth Road Bridge from the top.  Riding isn’t overly technical, however does require a bit of stamina to cycle up/push at bits, and parts of the top require a bit of make-your-own-trail riding between the lumpy mounds of grass.  Pace will be as per the slowest rider, so no-one gets left behind!

Bring a sense of adventure, some midge repellant, and the usual spares for repairs and food/water for a few hours riding off the beaten track.

I will leave the Clubhouse at 7:15pm, and have room for 3 more folks/bikes in my car.

Setting off from Wheelcraft carpark at 7:45pm.

Hope to see you there!
