Crow Road and the Stockiemuir cycle

That truly was an amazing cycle! First time, I’ve done in Scotland in a long time! This route, more than made for not cycling in Scotland for a good number of years!

The cycle took me from Killearn to Balfron, then to Fintry then over the Crow Road! Then into Strathblane, up onto the Stockiemuir then back into Killearn via Gartness Road!

Check out the killer hills the route took me over @ www.strava.com/activities/725740790.

I will now leave you with the route map, elevation graph, route statistics and photos.

05-Jun-2013 : Killearn to Inversnaid

I am so happy! This time I made it all the way from Killearn to Inversnaid. If you have been following this website for a good while. You may remember that way back in October 2011, I did try to do this cycle. But due to running out day light, I only made it to Loch Arklet then had to turn back. So this time, I made sure I set off at the better time. Also it helped since, I did it during summer. So had many more hours of day light to play with!

After doing this cycle, it’s going to make cycling around Lincolnshire, look very boring indeed! It may not the very good from the route map below. If you check it out on google street view, you will see why I loved doing it to much!

I will now leave you with the route map, elevation graph, route statistics and photos.

Updated the cycle route section

Over the past 24 to 48 hours I have been working like mad giving the cycle route section a much needed update. Never been fully happy with it, since the new version of the website went live last year.

The new look includes photos from each cycle. Well ones that I have photos from anyway. The maps have been changed from the satellite view to map view. I have also been adding elevation data. Also added new routes, which I have listed below.
