Day 38 Kirkoswald to Fairlie (near Largs)

Saturday 31st July Kirkoswald to Fairlie, 53 miles. 3 hours 51 minutes.

Weather: Overcast / intermittent rain.

Accommodation: Alan Sinclair (Roger and Sally - Crown).

A frustrating stop/start feel to today's ride. Contrast in landscapes - first part (Kirkoswald - Ayr) all countryside and then all built up areas (Ayr - Ardrossan) with return to countryside for final run into Fairlie. Passed by Troon Golf Club amongst many others in this area.

Most interesting thing en route was 'The Electric Brae' - a short section of road between Turnberry and Ayr where, due to an optical illusion created by the surrounding landscape, you appear to be cycling uphill when in actual fact you are descending.
