Wednesday Evening Run to Finavon

With some confusion regarding where we were going on Wednesday Night we took a route out passed Shielehill Bridge to Memus in case any one had gone there. From there we made our way round the back roads to Finavon where we met up with a few others. The way home was by Tannadice , Justinhaugh, and Battledykes.

On Sunday there are 2 Audaxes organised by Angus Cycling Club and leaving from the Rugby Club Rooms.
The Deeside Loop 200k Audax leaves at 8am
The Creme Scone 100k Audax leaves at 9am
The next wednesday evening run is to Glamis

Sunday Run 29th April

Sunday was a bit cold and breezy and with no fixed route planned, the group of 7, who turned up, first made their way along to Montrose the direct route. They then followed the cycle path out by the aerodrome and round to St Cyrus where the stopped for a coffee at the Cafe there. From there they took a wander round the back roads past Ecclesgreig Castle and eventually on by Marykirk and Gallery before making their way home to Forfar. The distance that day was around 66 miles.

There were 2 out on the B run leaving at 10am. As it was rather chilly they opted for a short run going out to Peggy Scotts for a cuppie before making their way back home.

Meanwhile two members Dave Fawcett and Dave Husband travelled to Gourock to take part in the "Rivers Lochs and Glens" 200k Audax. The weather was bright and sunny and the views were stunning as they took a route around by Erskine, Loch Lommond, and Arrocahar then down the south of Loch Fyne  to Otter Ferry before tackling a very hilly route over to Ardlamont, Tighnabruich, then Dunoon to catch the ferry back to the start.

It was a cold, wet, and windy night but never the less, six of us met up at the Drovers Inn at Memus.
Those leaving from the Clubrooms took the direct route out by Horny Cross and Shielhill Bridge.
