Birthday Bicycling


Don't mind if I do

We headed up to Pitlochry to celebrate Magda's birthday with a weekend of B&B, bikes, curry, champagne, strawberries, pubs and card games.

We took the train up to Pitlochry on the friday night, stayed in a B&B and, after a big breakfast fry-up, pedaled off around Loch Tummel.

The outward leg to Foss was rather undulating. One or two long uphill stretches were happily followed by equally long downhill ones. Rain held off for us but it was pretty chilly.

We arrived back in Pitlochry just before 1pm and had a big lunch in a pub. We then had a bit of a mooch in the shops before scooting off to a great old pub in Moulin for a drink.

By the time we got back, showered, relaxed, watched a crazy TV show where people have to jump across a swimming pool on inflatable red balls and drank some wine, we were ready for a curry.
A perfectly proportioned structure of striking beauty and a bridge.

Sunday we cycled to Dunkeld, where there is a great bridge built by Thomas Telford, and we stopped in another cool pub for tea (Magda) and beer (moi), then we got the train home.
