Path of Condie

PofC … not a chance .. not yet anyway .. but before the year is out!

    Sorry but going up that fracking hill twice is loony. Guess I might make it up once while the rest of you nutters loop the loop….

    Is the coffee stop meant to be the at Tay Racers?

    • spokeclinic says:

      The coffee stop is at tay racers!

      And yes i fully expect the dodge of the second ballo to be the norm!

    • David says:

      So i’m not the only one with that thought. I did wonder if by the time i get to the top once they fast group will have come round for a second time and I can just latch on the back and head for coffee 🙂

  2. David says:

    Which warped mind came up with this cunning plan!

  3. Bill says:

    Not a run you want to do with a hangover, so no drink for me Saturday night!!!!!! Well maybe one or two, it is a weekend that i am not working after all!!!!!

    Minor wrinkle in plan for Sunday … could result in a change of route … the garage at Balbeggie was closed yesterday (Wednesday) by the men in suits… bankrupt I believe. .. 😦 .. so no fresh scones there…

  5. spokeclinic says:

    Addendum to local gem (so we take in a scone worth having) … Ballo, Abernyte, Littleton, Lundie, Newtyle, scarytown (lol) left across main road back to Meigle… usual run home (40 miles) or no left at scarytown and go out to Glamis and back to Meigle and usual run home (46 miles) … Now John read this right.. this is not two runs its a 40 mile one with a possible 6 mile extension.. no John the run isn’t 6 miles its 40 or 46.

  6. David says:

    Looks like it going to be a nice day for his purgatory 🙂 Still 08.30 start or has that changed like the route.

    Have got the run right up to the scarytown part then you totally lost me there!!!!! Explain yourself man????

  8. David says:

    Glad to see it wasn’t just me he managed to lose. Thought it was some hidden village that only Locals could see at certain times of the year.

  9. Ross Duncan says:

    Sorry could not get out today, Sal away so stuck on child minding duties. Hopefully next week.

  10. spokeclinic says:

    No probs Ross…. What did you miss … Dave having a green moment at the top of Ballo, Bill having a sideslipping moment on the way to Lundie. Alan getting a flat before we got to Scarytown (no spanners so he walked home). Scarytown lived up to its name 100 cars, 25 houses 0 people! Meigle was a joy to be hold, nice tea, nice scones, nice errr waiting staff. Pile of other moist cyclists there too, who looked like they had had accident in their shorts – not realising of course that we were all the same brown streakit goons. So run complete, stickers issued… Now where to next week Amulree? or something else? You will just have to wait and see 🙂

  11. spokeclinic says:

    here is next weeks run … wee touch lumpy but actually quite flat until about 4 miles from home .. guess which wee lump we are going up! clue: its not ballo in any direction!

  12. david says:

    No “vom” was produced just a wee feeling of wanting to puke! I think I enjoyed Ballo LUndie was slippy had to stop and see if i had a flat as I was skidding on the corners. Meigle coffee shop rockie road was the mutts. Knees nipping a bit right now.

  13. Bill says:

    Looks good and a wee trip up my second favourite hill Bursie Brae, oh joy!!!!!! What about a wee bit extra, going down by the racecourse to keep off the main road, will only add a mile or so???

    • spokeclinic says:

      Well you see.. i had thought of that… then thought… that road is rubbish in the summer… whats it going to be like now. But whats the alternative

      • Bill says:

        Alternative not a good option I think, as it means over Kinnoull Hill to St Madoes, Errol, Abernyte and back over Ballo, that will add on about 15 Miles and is hard going up through Abernyte and over Ballo (Oh yeh forgot its no to easy over Kinnoull Hill either). Forcast is sunny but really windy (maybe from my arse, curry tonight!!!!) but will do it if anyone else fancies it???
