We finally got bike racks for the roof of the car. OK, we actually got a new car that has roof racks, but either way, we can now get the bikes to far flung locations and go for a ride.
At the weekend we took the bikes down to Troon, and cycled along NCR7 to Prestwick, and then on to Ayr, where we parked up, had a bite to eat, and then headed back to Troon and the car.
Round trip of about 18 or so miles (that’s an average between the road sign millage, and the distance Map My Ride told us it was (20 and 16 respectively. Personally I’d take the road signage as the more accurate, but until I get a Garmin or something, it’s as close as I’ll get).
Anyway, the pic below was taken at Prestwick beach, which is about halfway between Troon and Ayr. Think since Karen is using a “sit-up and beg” type bike, due to backache on her mtb, then, this is a pretty decent distance. Next stop Largs and the ferry to Cumbrae.
