Last Sunday my mate Ronnie and myself headed off for a run on the bikes in the general direction of Glendevon, just south of the famous Gleneagles golf course. I say general direction because we picked as many of the wee back roads to travel there as possible, life in the slow lane and no other traffic dictating the pace!
Half way up the Glen there is a turning for the Frandy Fishery, an upland reservoir about 3mls from the main road. It just so happens there's a fishing hut there where you can usually get a warm cuppa during the season.
So after a not so quick cuppa and a blether we headed of in the direction of Stirling, travelling along the Hillfoots. so called because it follows the base of the Ochil Hills, strangely enough. All went well till about 7 miles from home, then the wee MZ cut out.... yes they do run better with fuel in them and better not to run with the fuel tap in the reserve position.... other than that it was a good wee run.
