3 Ferries Run on Sunday 12th June 2011.

Post by D. McL. » Tue 07 Jun, 2011 6:50 pm

Hi Folks,

Sunday 12th June 2011.

The itinerary is as follows.

STARTING POINT: Meet at Wemyss Bay ferry terminal @ 8.45 - 9.00am.
At this point we will decide on which route you prefer and we will purchase tickets accordingly.

ROUTE A: Board the 10.15am Cal-Mac Ferry to Rothesay. Cycle the circular route on A844 round Bute including a cafe stop at Ettrick Bay and re-group back at the ferry terminal. Distance 22 miles.

ROUTE B: As above, but cycle up to Rhubodach and back down on A886 and re-group at the ferry terminal.
Distance 32 miles.

ROUTE C: Meet at Wemyss Bay ferry terminal. Cycle up the coast to Gourock and board the 10.20am Cal-Mac ferry to Dunoon. Cycle northwards on A815 past Loch Eck to Strachur for a cafe stop. Then onwards on A886 through Glendaruel Forest (road, not a mountain bike trail) and down to Colintraive then board the ferry for the 5 minute crossing to Rhubodach. Cycle down to the ferry terminal at Rothesay where we will ALL re-group again before boarding the ferry for Wemyss Bay to take us back to our STARTING POINT.
Distance 53 miles.

ROUTE D: As above but take right at Port Bannantyne and include cycling round Bute and meet at the ferry terminal for the Wemyss Bay crossing.
Distance 73 miles.

Routes A & B are ideal for beginners to come along and enjoy, with Routes C & D. for the mile munchers

I'll lead route C & D. If there are any riders wishing to do A or B we can select an appropriate leader at Wemyss Bay before we set off.

Let's hope the weather improves for Sunday.

Cheers
D. McL.
