Ochills Loop via Ben Cleuch – FK12 5LU – 10.30am Start
September 3 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm
Ochills loop from Alva Woodlands car park, via Ben Buck, Ben Cleuch and Andrew Gannel Hill, and back to start via Tillicoultry.
Driving eastwards to the East end of Alva (at the finish of the houses), take the wee road on the left, just immediately past ‘Burnside Farm Road – it bears North East and eventually comes to the Woodlands Car Park. Closest post code is FK12 5LU.
10.30am start. Ready to ride.
Easy pace going up. It’s a long, very steep in places, climb up Landrover track, then over gently sloping, heathery tops – Ben Buck, Ben Cleuch, and Andrew Gannel Hill, and down superb, but steep and technical in places, singletrack. Bits can be walked if needed.
Bring plenty of food, water, spares, a waterproof and, of course, no helmet no ride.
Decent visibility is required for this ride, both for navigation, and the outstanding views afforded – Mamores and Ben Nevis can be seen. So if the forecast turns bad, we will postpone for another day.
Please post a comment if you are coming on the ride -thanks – Nigel
