Something a bit different for the YesBikers, After sharing this route on the page, some of the guys asked if we could run it. There's no indy event on this day so let's make our own indy Convoy and ride a cracking route, with flags flying, no city traffic to deal with, and what better road that one named after and inspired by the King of Scots Robert The Bruce. Wee bit of Scottish history on the open road. If you missed this year's NC500 indy convoy this is the next best thing.
Last day in September, might be the last chance to get a good run before the weather turns wintry, let's make it a good one.
Our YesBiker brother Colin Mackie is from around there so suggested we start at New Cumnock and head clockwise, when we get back to the start we can head up to Ardeer to Freedom MCC's new club house. They will have the kitchen open for tea and coffee and maybe a roll.
Read about the route below.
Route at a Glance
This route takes you through Robert The Bruce territory and into the centre of the Galloway Forest to Glentrool. An area that Robert The Bruce camped at in 1307. From Bruce’s stane (stone) you get a magnificent 360 Degree view of the area.
You will not regret Glentrool, it’s one of those places that you will feel privileged to have seen.
