Great safe ride. The only downside is that the pedestrians do not always give way that slows one down. Don't think that the ave of 20km/h can be exceeded! We need more dedicated tracks for road cycling. The surface is good too.

Rule 62 of the Highway Code requires us to avoid pedestrians not for them to give way. Use this rule when not on a segregated route.

This was my first long trip. It was very pleasant ride. Managed till Drumoak, then comes the major obstacle, IRVINE ARMS! The owner, a local gent, serves the drink, very friendly. I think from Drumoak it is a single carriage way to Banchory (correct me if I am wrong), so abandoned the trip and took a bus back to Aberdeen. Nice views, pleasant ride till Drumoak. Enjoy!!

Great ride, I could make 23.9 km/h average on that road, but indeed some pedestrians are annoying I could use a football horn and they wouldn't budge, also dogs MUST be on leash.
