I wake early in the airport. I fly to Glasgow. Taking my bike from bag it is easy to get back together. Rear tyre goes flat a half mile from airport. I ride across Glasgow checking out bike stores looking for a tyre as the nubs are worn off the rear tyre in three weeks.

I take a signed bike route out of Glasgow. Roads and some trails.  One wildlife sign uses the term wee beasties.  I stop to eat and find that the spot is William Wallace birth place.  So a traditional Scottish meal in his old home “saag paneer”.  Bike route run in an old railroad cut.  It is difficult to see any place to camp while in the railroad cut.  I ride on and watch the sunset.  Far out of Glasgow I end up back on roads and not seeing anywhere to camp.  Then find the road closed for construction and don’t want to take the main road without a headlight.  I head through the construction and around high fences as it is eleven.   A couple more miles and I finally find a place to camp.
Love and kisses
