Wednesday Evening Pub Run

Four of us, Dave,Gus,Ian, and Charlie, set off from Lowson Avenue into the now predictable westerly breeze.
The Strathmore Arms at Glamis was the destination and we took the winter route out by Drumgley, to Roundyhill then down the main road to Glamis. Ian's getting fitter so we were out of puff by the time we got there and glad of a refreshment. Ron, Alan, and Keith were there already.
The Pub and restaurant was quiet so apart from one other table we had the place to ourselves.
Back home the main road with a tail wind.

The run on Sunday 22nd is to Glen Clova
The next Wednesday night pub run (25th) is to Roundyhill

Angus CC Annual Lunch

On Sunday, 18 members enjoyed the annual lunch held this year at the Strathmore Arms in Glamis.
For those wanting to work up an appetite there was a short run starting at the usual time of 10am.
It was a bright sunny day but cold and frosty so avoid the freezing fog we decided to climb out of the valley up by Kirriemuir. From there it was along the Alyth road with fine views over Strathmore. There was little breeze so the cycling in the sun was pleasant as we continued along to Ruthven crossroads and down to the Bogside road. Turning right just after Blackhill farm we then crossed over the main road at Eassie crossroads then up the hill to the Newtyle road. From there it was just a couple of miles along to Glamis. The meal was enjoyed by all, and near the end the President Ron Harrow gave a short speech thanking all for attending.
