Slug Rd cycle

Today I went out for a cycle round a little bit of aberdeenshire near aberdeen city. I think i did pretty well considering the cold temperatures.

route taken
Aberdeen to Crathes then along slug road to Stonehaven and back up to Aberdeen via Portlethen and the CTC route 1.
between Stonehaven and portlethen I managed to get a little off the beaten track and managed to stray across a few fields left to lay fallow, traverse a burn or two and finally come across a Tesco where I was able to get a better idea as to where I was.

Going over Slug road was a blast as it is a main route between Stonehaven and Banchory but due to road works it's almost completely free from traffic. I only saw 5 cars along the 14 mile length of road. Admittidly its also a Sunday.

hopefully the following link will show a map of my route. It a bit sloppy at the start and at the end.

the rest of today has been getting warmed up and later eating a homemade curry.
