Angus Cycling Club Outings

Sunday Run
Week 1 6/11/2011
A great day for cycling a clear frosty morning with bright sunshine.
Seven cyclists set off on the A run. Climbing steeply out of Forfar up the Lour Road we were soon enjoying the sunshine as we made their way round by  Craichie  and Bowriefaulds and down to Idvies. Climbing steeply at first the gradient eased slightly for a few miles up by Dumbarrow then over the summit of Cairconon Hill which afforded fine views of Arbroath and the coastline below. After fine descent to Woodville we dropped down to St Vigeans then up to Meadowbank for a morning cuppy and a bacon roll. In the warmth of the sun we continued along the coastal cycle route by Redcastle and Lunan bay pausing  to regroup at Braehead.

From there we  meandered around by Usan and Boddin before dropping down into Ferryden. At Montrose the group split up with 3 taking the direct route back to Forfar. The remainder headed around by Hillside where we began to climb steadily up to Bank of Gallery then Muir of Pert.

At Hill of Stracathro, the toss of a coin decided the route home which was down the hill and over the A90 returning to Forfar in the fading light and the dipping temperatures by Murling Den, Little Brechin and Carreston.

Next Wednesday Evening Run 9th November to the Drovers Inn at Memus 7pm from clubrooms.
Next Sunday run 13th November to Inchture. 10am from Leisure Centre.
