    Difficult choice, either to come up to Aviemore to see the gorgeous Annie, or a few hours of watching your dangling balls ……..Sorry, but Annie won !!
    Next week Caledonia, and then a work reunion, so hopefully the 11th.

    Solo it was, so, it was case of no road, no Wee Bear Cafe – I wheezed up Whitelea road into the wind and got acknowledged by a roadie fleeing in the other direction…First never travelled road was the left just after the narrow bridge. This took me on to the St Martins Road … I cross the A93 and headed … into the woods… to see if the bears sh!t there. I charged down the road and came to a locked gate. A locked gate with CCTV. Now i have to question the right to roam. Do we have the right to follow a rough little farm track to and through a farm? The wee farmer appears to have issues, so I waved at the cameras (all three of them) smiled and left to back to the left turn I avoided on the way down.
    This little track took me to another farm. gates all open I just cruised through and followed my nose to the Stormontfield road. The end of this track was an 8ft steel gate with a padlock..S H I T! I was not going back, so contemplated my options… climb or go back… Climb, yes now in the investigation to climb I spotted a hole in the fence… which I squeezed through.
    I went to Stormontfield, It seemed only polite as I had just ridden the villages namesake road 🙂
    Next, after It scoping the village, I headed back up to another track, I was pretty sure I knew where it would emerge. Oh no not another farm to cross, through. This time I was met by a barking vicious dog, hell bent on chewing my legs off… I pedalled on, the snarling beasts head following the rotation, but always threatening and then backing off to have a go at the other side. The 8 inch high terrier, stopped its relentless onslaught at the farm boundary 🙂
    The track came out on the A93… I went right and stopped at the Strawberry shop to calm my jangling nerves.. lol.
    Having been calmed by my cup of tea, I head for the Muirwood and then Scone International Airport. I skirted the apron and rode round the end of the main runway… I liked the sign that warned me to look left, look right and Look UP!… good job to I had to wait for a cesna to land.
    Heading home now was just the usual St Martins/Dunsinnan/Wolfhill and a blast back down Whitelea road.
