    You’d think at least Paisley or Johnstone, a bit of distance, probably depends who stole it.

    My commute covers a lot of the heavily used bike lanes, will keep em peeled. Both very recognisable bikes.

    Couple of bits of road but the vast majority is gravel. Not my route, when they did it last year the weather was horrible!

    Route out to Aberfoyle depends on how you want to get there. You can just hit it straight up the A81, I ride it a lot and it's really not that bad, especially if you're off reasonably early. Otherwise you can go out to Drymen via the West Highland Way, over the pipe track and on the cycle path to Aberfoyle. Significantly more climbing/longer (I think) but a lot less cars. Pretty sure all the WHW is CX-bikeable to Drymen and it's been dry so shouldn't be horribly muddy like it can be. I can plot that route for you if you want it?

    Here you go:

    It's 100km, but add on cycling to Aberfoyle and getting to a camp site and you'll probably get 100 miles out of it:

    Gav's feeling good apparently. He's Moray based now but still in touch with loads of people at GGCC so we're all taking a keen interest. Pretty sure it is his first ultra-race, he's a monster rider so should do well. He's also got a $10,000 Zwift final in Canada about 3 days after this!

    Regarding the 3 hour rule, as I don't race I won't give an opinion on it. I do think it might affect the race for the win, probably won't make much difference to anyone else though.

    You've probably got little chance with the BHF then I'm afraid. You could speak to the porter and see if they can set your card up, but our new cards aren't working yet and we're having to use our old ones so even if they're willing it might not be possible.
