This route is one of my favourites, I'll be there all being well, looking forward to it, let's hope a few more join us as it'll be a great day out.

subject to weather playing ball.

On your route - Moniaive to Carsphairn is a cow sh*t covered single track! Bloody awful in a car and worse on a bike, you will want to end your life before Carsphairn !!!! Not fun.
Stay on the road to Dalry, then turn right up to Carsphairn, more miles but is quicker and the road from Moniaive to Dalry is a belter, surface not brilliant in parts, but bits of it are great. (I learned to ride the SV on this road).


Can't join you, as am up in Dunoon for the weekend, and if I wasn't I would be rallying MG's around a field !!!!

Cool Re: Bibio's Sunday Bimbles

D&G Circular Route

Not trying to teach my granny to suck eggs, but there are some crap bits on your route !!!!

Look at the link above. I did this route on Sunday with a boy over from Ireland for the day, and I have to say it was an absolute belter. Every bit of it is a great bit of road. Some gravel sprayed around, over Queensway and other places, but only small % of the whole route.

Moniaive to Carsphairn up to ayr and then down to Girvan ain't much fun, Moniaive to carspahirn is ****, especially after all this rain we're having. Electric brae nowt to get excited about on a motorbike, no matter how hard I try i doesn't have the same effect as in a car.


Have a look at Myrouteapp.com, use it to plan all my routes then send to the Garmin.
