Second bike run of the year

Today Kevin, Claire and I braved the weather and took to the hills...from Edinburgh to Aberfeldy via Crieff, then alongside Loch Tay to Killin before heading home through Callander.

The weather was fine in Edinburgh but soon fingers and noses were freezing as we gained altitude. By the time we reached Aberfeldy for lunch we were ordering extra soup to stick our hands into. It even managed a little snow for us, enough to stick to our visors, but it didn't last and the views of Ben Lawers were stunning.

We managed to scare some horses too, nearly enough to unseat their riders. Despite stopping the bikes, and our engines, one of them went mental and spooked the others. The lady in charge yelled and bawled at the horse (Claire managed not to yell and bawl at the lady) so I guess that told it.

The picture shows the bikes covered in salt and Hamish the Highland Cow in Doune.
