After a few recce rides over the past three weeks we have decided to re route the first 2km of the bike course.
Instead of going directly south on the A82 to the Balloch Roundabout, and then coming back on yourself past Duck Bay en route to the Arden roundabout, you will now do the following.
After 200m of riding, at the entrance for Cameron House you will exit roundabout at “one o’clock” and proceed onto bike path. The small kerb has been lowered, however care will need to be taken.
The bike path continues round the corner and along the side of the A82. For 250m it is a narrow 2 way path.
There is then a set of bollards to pass and then you are on the Old Luss Road. This is a very empty, dead end road. There are a few small potholes, but generally speaking the tarmac is in very good condition for the 1 mile stretch into Balloch.
Once in Balloch you turn right at each of the three roundabouts which will take you north onto the A82 towards the sprint , standard and middle loops.
