Title: Dodge the rain,,,,,,,,,,,,,head East
Post by: Aldo on September 09, 2018, 02:23:52 am
Mr McDerv and I were supposed to be oot fir a hurl today (Saturday)

He called off so off I went to see what this Duc was aboot.

The west of nesbitland was showing wet,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,not going there on sport tyres thanks.

Off east I headed, thinking it'll be cold but dry.

How wrong I was,,,,,,,,,,,,,,bright blue skies and the temp gauge didn't dip below 12 degrees.

I headed for the Glenshee - Lecht area through a mix of different road types and arrived in Crieff.

From there I headed up the Sma Glen to Aberfeldy then left to Pitlochry.

I took that braw wee road from a mentally busy Pitlochry towards Bridge of Cally then onto the A93 past Glenshee and off towards Tomintoul.

Never got as far as the Lecht,,,,,,got to a junction that had Ricoland on it and decided to try a new to me road.

Rejoined the 93 and went south back up to Glenshee,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,now those of you that have been on this road know how cold it gets as you climb up to the ski centre.

Not today,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it was fukkin roasting,,,,,,,,,,,,,,21C across the road from the main car park.   bop1

When I collected my munter the rear tyre was squared off a bit, today I gave it a bit of welly to see if I could knock the edges off.

Unfortunately it didn't work but I fair enjoyed trying it.   frown1

theres a couple just after the Spittal o Glenshee ( old burned oot hostel)  where the road if headin North is a nice fast right hand wide new bito road that pretty quickly closes doon tae nae much mair than a single tracker, the last bit before ye head up the long fast hill tae the Glenshee Ski Centre

The last two humps and dips there always catch me oot...any thing ower 40 is a big no no  eek1z   Many a Power Ranger clad hero come a cropper on that stretch.

There's one heading south from the ski centre that has a substantial hump with a sharp change of direction at the top of the hump,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,misjudge that and you'll fly straight over the other side of the road before you touch down.

It's a road that's braw but demands your utmost respect.

If you don't know it well and go at it gung ho,,,,,,you could be in serious trouble very quickly.   frown1
