Ha ha - don't feel 'left out' mate .... It was a 'last minute thing' and I was out on my own.

I'm not quite sure what the 'doctors dangle' is ..... but probably yes, particularly on the way back up when I stalled it and, despite holding the brake on the bike started sliding backwards and just spun the rear initially as I got it running.......for a moment I had an 'Oh sh1t! - this isn't good!' moment .

The daft thing is it was all for nowt! ... when I got down to the bridge the gate to it had been shut and locked by the rangers for the night ..... There had been a barrier higher up that was also locked ... but you could ride round that, taking care to avoid the steep drop off ...



After the evening's excitement I was ready for a drink and headed on up to Strathyre where I found a contingent of the Knitting Club .....




This was also there ...... I think the 999 is looking more and more classic .......

We will try to do the best we can, but it is very difficult to control the weather

Ha ha - it shows how everything is relative ...if it was 17C here we would be saying 'it's getting warm'....not 'it's getting cold'

I was out this morning for a ride and it was 11C .

Because of Sarah's broken wrist we can't do our normal cycle on Saturdays ..so we have had to replace it with hillwalking to get our dose of fresh air and exercise instead. A week ago we climbed up the Callander Crags which gives one a nice view down over the town ...here you can see two locations of quite a few pics on this thread, the two Callander car parks - 1. Where we often stop for our group rides' first break of the day and 2. Where we often stop to have chips beside the river in an evening ...examples of both also below....



1,

2.

This week, our hillwalk was climbing up Ben Lomond (3,196 ft) ..my legs are still stiff now two day's later.

Early part of the walk ..looking down on Loch Lomond...the main A82 can be seen snaking around the far side of the loch....



Higher up ...but still a long way to the top....



Unfortunately up near the top was in the clouds ..so no view ..and it was freezing, so we didn't hang around for long....
