This is the Crow Road which leads up and over the Campsie Fells just North of Glasgow. Not very exotic but it’s a great road and a challenging climb and normally busy with cyclists, bikers and hill walkers. On this very grey and wet Saturday at dawn, however, it was silent, empty and shrouded in cloud. The great thing about Glasgow is that after only 15 minutes riding from the city centre you can be out in the countryside all by yourself! –Richard
