Dumyat Downfall!

Dumyat is a special place for many reasons; accessible, remote, and stunning views of the central belt including Grangemouth …………!  The Ochils offer fabulous running, biking, navigating and solitude.  Today it was a little wintery which was my downfall.  A hidden rut under the snow and my front wheel went north and me south in a perfect arms outstretched superman position for ten slushy metres.  No harm done, the watching Highland cattle just, well, looked on ……  The lesson today was go slower, more weight back and relax!
