Three set off on another frosty but fairly calm night from the club rooms, this time of year the hill is normally to slippy on the descent so we decided to take the short route direct to Finavon via Oathlaw where we met Tom and Andy for a few pints, before heading back out into the cold night for the journey home again via Oathlaw. Short night - 14 miles 12.9mph
A pretty cold and windy day greeted a large group of 11 cyclists for the annual Mince Pie run to Tom 7 Mary's. After much faffing about we headed towards Horny Cross with the intention of heading towards Brechin and back to Forfar but the way the wind was going it was decided the cut short and head for Glamis via Kirrie. An obligatory tea stop was had at the Park Tavern where a couple early pints replaced the tea of a few!
After tea it was down the hill to Glamis and back to Forfar with the wind behind us most of the way, an effort was made to regroup prior to arriving at Tom's but a few were keen on a seat by the fire and didn't wait!
Thanks to hosts Tom and Mary and all the ladies who helped with the catering for an excellent spread and a good afternoon with a few light refreshments
