Day trip; Tentsmuir....
Forth bridge closure detour via M9, The Kelpies...
Sunday 8 riders made it for a social fatbike ride around Tentsmuir in Fife, After a wet, damp and overcast two weeks weather it was lovely to get out cycling on a cold crisp frosty winter`s day.
We spent most of the day riding the sandy single track in the woods, and what sweet single track it is at Tentsmuir. I had not been here this year so was glad to get over for a ride there again.
Craig offered to drive over and we met at the Rail Station car park and rode from there with the Forest car park closed due to forestry work. Steven led most of the way and a nice trail via the Fife Coastal Path got us off road to the woods. Most of the trails we rode i have ridden previously but there was a few new trails to me, and Steven led a nice loop taking in the best of Tentsmuir, we racked up 20 miles in the 4 hours we were out, loads of laughs, stops for banter and a break at the Crepe Shack, where some folks out walking tried our fatbikes and came back with big grins :)
Craig took all these pics, while i did some filming. Pics are not in order but capture the day well...
Loads of WW2 Coastal Crust defences here to explore...
I did loads of filming to capture the great single track trails so rather than edit i made up for films all around 4 minutes each...
