Cycle run through Strathrory with the Bible Class

Saturday 15th February 2003

This was a beautiful day – the sun kept shining and you could even feel its warmth. I really enjoyed the cycle, the day and the company. Thank you everyone who came along. Eleven of us cycled from the church at Rosskeen up to Ardross, through Strath Rory to Aldie and then back to the church on the Scotsburn Road.

the lads take a rest at Ardross Primary School

Les (Lance Armstrong) pictured here cycled ahead to meet Aileen at Strathy – we were already nearly an hour late meeting her

does it look as if we are ready to go – Hugh, David and John

Strathy at last – meet up with Aileen

the burn through Starth Rory

Ben Wyvis and getting higher

“Lance” and Rory got to the top first notice Rabs got his jacket off – maybe sweating a bit but nearly at the top.

Aileen reaching the top

does John stop eating ?

the downhill at last – Cromarty Firth ahead

looking out to the Soutars of Cromarty, Ben Rhinnes can be just made out

looking at Geordie’s grave – a dog killed in a road accident 1923

Geordie’s wee stone

we had to go careful here – very frozen, that’s Carina right on the junction

after 20 miles – maybe we shouldn’t have done it ! only Lance could cycle it back !
