It's not a bad wee road until you get to where it hasn't been resurfaced.
And I hate that tight downhill part to the wee bridge (not the sweeping right hander at the other bridge with the layby). Always wet and gravel on the corners there.
That is my wee quick blast route, then stop at the cemetery at Muirkirk for a cigarette. :lol:

Got soaked this morning riding to Arrochar along the Loch Long road, lunch at the Pitstop Diner, back down Loch Long and then in the mist over the Glen Fruin Rd to the Loch Lomond Rd (A82).

Up to Buchlyvie for a black pudding roll, then did the rest of the Carse of Stirling. Meant to come back via the Carron Valley, but it was closed, so had to come back via Kilsyth and Kirky - boring. Got a sore bottom, so I have bought a gel seat pad.

Overlooking Faslane Naval Base.

Came back over Glen Douglas, a single track road covered in gravel and cow dung. Felt the bike slide about a lot.
