A long cycle from Glasgow to Lesmahagow and back.

From Glasgow Green we shall head south skirting around East Kilbride and Strathaven on mostly B roads. We then head towards Coalburn, but take a left towards Lesmahagow to avoid busier roads. Opportunity for a coffee or refreshments there. The return leg takes us North West towards Blantyre and then back to Glasgow Green.

To accommodate folk who would like to do a shorter ride we can meet you at Auldhouse about 11am. I'll post a shorter version below. It doesn't link up exactly with longer ride but not far off. There is an industrial estate nearby with plenty free parking. Just private message me if you choose this option.
