Best local downhill

To continue the ‘Summer’ season wednesday away rides, Dave Ashton and I were thinking of descent off Slackdhu down to Cantywheery on the pipe track. Last week we did Helensburgh to Duntocher on the John Muir Way.

So it is, out towards Killearn then up the back of Dumgoyne, then across the top to Slackdhu

Leaving at the Blanefield War Memorial at 7.30 sharp. I will be riding out from Bearsden

Post up if you are coming along

  1. Sounds good but sorry Chris, got a couple of things on tomorrow early eve. I should be able to get to the club for a 7.45 ride though

    • Hi Ian, I got your email about club tops but I’ve been getting bounceback emails from your email account when I try to reply. Could you email me your mobile number and I’ll let you know the latest on club tops? cheers.

  2. Hi Dave,

    I would be keen defo! Word of warning though I am tad (lot) out of shape after a mystery bug, I am also an unblooded new member so feel free to drop me if/when necessary.

    Basically right off my door step!

    It’s a gradual climb back upto Dumgoyne then a bit of a push for most of us on to the top.The moor can be boggy but hopefully dry given the weather we have had. If we dont make it, it wont be the first time. It’s generally frowned on if we drop folks, especially new members, so dont worry

  4. Tom, are you in for it? Please let me know, I don’t want to do it on my own…

  5. Sadly, Im pulling out of this, another time when I am feeling better
