St. Andrews - 18-11/12

Were on a roll - third sunny Sunday in a row - but frosty!

Seven headed up the Dundee Rd heading for the Tay Bridge via Carrot Hill where we briefly paused to regroup and enjoy the view.

The cafe at the south end of the bridge does great black pudding rolls and is a popular re fueling point for cyclists.  After rolls and tea etc Charlie, Ron, Norman & Gus, the latter mentioning The Tav in Ardler, headed for home leaving Colin Ian and David to head for St Andrews.

We stopped in the sunshine at Strathkinnes for a bite to eat before continuing on the Dairsie, where we got caught on the edge of a heavy rain shower, Balmullo, Wormit and back to the bridge for a brief pause, c of n etc, to discuss the route home.

We decided to avoid Carrot Hill and took the option of the steep climb up Albert Street then onto Pitkerro Road, Longhaugh Rd and out into the country side heading for Burnside of Duntrune.  From there we headed to The Old Forfar Rd where we crossed the dual carriage way and took the road to Glamis and then home.  

A good day out, 72 miles 12.1 mph av
