Wednesday night Run

Following the heavy snow early in the week, it was still rather chilly on Wednesday night so instead of heading over Finavon Hill to the Hotel, they instead took a route out by Horny Cross and Justinhaugh. It was a fine night for cycling albeit chilly.

The Run on Sunday is to Clatterin Brig and please note that this starts at 9am from the leisure centre.
The Wednesday night run will be to Glamis.

The 100k Audax organised by Ron last Tuesday had to be abandoned due to snow, so he is hoping to run it this Tuesday instead.

Sunday Run to St Cyrus

Club members were involved in a few activities over the weekend.
On Saturday, Dave Fawcett and Dave Husband traveled to Edinburgh to take part in the 200k "Nippy Sweetie" Audax Event. The weather was fine,  the route  took them up to Perth , over by  Crieff to Comrie then over the hill to Braco where they made their way round by Kinbuck and Bridge of Allan. The going wasn't too hard but after they climbed up through Clackmannan they had to work hard into a stiff breeze all the way along the Forth and back into Auld Reekie.
On Sunday Ian Matheson was involved in a sportif based near Callander. The demanding route took them over the Duke's Pass and around Loch Katerine twice before heading round by Menteith and up the hill past Kippen then over by the Fintry hills before returning.
Meanwhile the club run on Sunday was to St Cyrus. The group first made their way round by House of Dun then up by Montrose to St Cyrus.

Wednesday Evening Run

Eight members enjoyed a fine night cycling out round by Memus, stopping at the Drovers for some refreshments.
