So how far do you ride in the afternoon/evening?

Is it to and back or is it circle trip, meaning not traveling the same roads twice?

Hi there... it's 'to and back' and about 87 miles in total.

You are right...I do feel lucky to have had a few sunny days ...but then I think - Hang on! It's summer! - It's supposed to be sunny!

But the winter just seemed to last forever this year - right up to mid May. ...not so sunny today ..but it's looking good for the weekend.....let's hope it holds, ..and I hope you are getting your share too now.

Couple from Tuesday evening ..stopped on the way home at the Riverside Museum to get some shots..

Sat was nice here ..but unfortunately we were away visiting my Mum. Luckily Sunday stayed dry for us (cloudy and sunny spells with 14C) which allowed us to get out on the bikes ....10 bikes in total which was pretty good considering a lot of the group are currently away in the Isle of man for the TT practice week.

Sunday morning - and we are heading north ....leaving Glasgow..
(I have taken to snapping the odd 'traffic light pic'...well, what else are you going to do whilst you wait for the lights to change - why not entertain yourself by jumping off and snapping a couple of pics..)

Because the best chance of finding sunshine lay to the north east we decided to head up to Killin and then turn east to Aberfeldy for lunch.

Up the A84 towards Killin...
