Autumn Away Day

Post by Guy_Walker » Sun 29 Oct, 2017 10:28 pm

An established fixture in the Fullarton Wheelers calendar is an Autumnal Away Day to the Trossachs. This marks the end of the summer season, a time for dusting off the winter bikes, tightening up the mudguards, and making the most of any sunny days that come along. Sunday was one such day. The temperature was a chilly eight degrees but the winds were light. Perfect conditions for a 57 mile figure of eight loop beginning in Callander in the middle of the Trossachs National Park, and climbing the Dukes Pass – all 750ft of it, a lot at 10% gradient – twice. Twenty three Fullarton riders took part in the ride which was organised by Membership Secretary Mikey Allen, a large contingent but still only a fifth of the total club membership. This is a challenging ride involving no less than 3900 feet of climbing in total, but the autumnal scenery was stunning and there is no better way to experience it than on a bike.
