1st Gravel Bike Weekender Event at Ardoch Lodge

Ardoch Lodge host the Ronde CC from Edinburgh for a weekend of winter biking, food and stunning scenery. Friday evening everyone arrived to homemade chilli and it was early to bed with a worrying layer of snow on the ground. Waking up to a beautiful winter wonderland and a delicious cooked breakfast we set out for a challenging ride in Aberfoyle, but all was well and it was back to Ardoch Lodge to home made cakes from Violette. Our local pub, The White Stag did us proud for dinner with a four course delicious meal which went down a treat, and set us up nicely for our Sunday ride. It was better conditions for Sunday with even a bit of sun to see us round Loch Venacher, all in all a very successful weekend.

“Ah yes! What a marvellous weekend thanks to Cornelius Mette and the girls for a lovely stay and to Rich & Martin for all plans laid. Looking forward to the next extravaganza!” Craig

“I wholeheartedly add my thanks to Cornelius, Mette and girls and Rich, Martin and Craig the white van Mitchell for everything they did for us to make it a fantastic weekend with great company. And many thanks to Violette for the recipe. See you soon somewhere on the road.” Blaire
