I've started the year the way I mean to go on - by getting out the bike when possible. Today was dull and breezy but dry (at first) and a bearable temperature (6C/43F) so I went for a run to the nearby coast.

|Nearby is the paddle steamer "Comet". It was built in the town in 1811 and was the first successful stream passenger ship in Europe. This is a replica built in the 1960's by shipyard apprentices.|

|A Viking in Largs. There is a Viking theme here because of the Battle of Largs in 1263.|
|It wasn't a day for ice cream|
|Wish you were here? a very dull Largs seafront|
|A bike shop in Seamill of which I was previously unaware. They seem to specialise in "classics". For my brother here's an old one of his - a Honda CB200.|
