Just a gentle shopping trip to start off a week of cycling on Arran
extending our range
I've blogged about it here
My hostess met a friend in Brodick. I cycled towards Brodick, pondering visiting Blackwaterfoot. By the time I'd got to the top of the Brodick-Lamlash hill, my hostess texted me to say that she was cycling to meet me, so I turn round and headed north. We met just north of Brodick and cycled back north. Because the weather was very pleasant, we pushed on to Sannox before returning to Corrie.
While my hostess dealt with some family matters, I cleaned mud from Vilior's chain and gears. I then headed for my last self-challenge for this visit: the Boguille. (It's pronounced ‘Bo-gillie’, by the way.) I think I set off around 3pm and reached the summit about 3:30. (I had one premature stop because of the wind.) I then headed on to Lochranza, bought some whisky at the Arran distillery and turned back towards Corrie. Back at the summit of the Boguille, my hostess texted me to say she was headed to meet me. We met just above the first rise northwest of Sannox and gently cycled back to Corrie.
9 miles is much easier when there is good tarmac and no hills.
