Yes, the weather is very nice for riding, except during winter. I also live near some very good roads, with very little traffic.....life is good.
Although the weather isn't ideal, you live in a beautiful country. If things haven't changed too much, you can ride north of Glasgow for about an hour and feel like you've stepped back in time. And, the further north you go.....the better it gets. Of course, if you wait till it stops raining, you might never leave your driveway.
Only a fellow Scot would pick up on a Glaswegian being a Hearts fan. The simple fact is, I was born in Glasgow, but only lived there for five years. My dad, who was a very good player, grew up in Motherwell and Hearts was his favo(u)rite team....so I guess it rubbed off on me, as well. He has since passed, and I never found out why he liked Hearts. However, I do know, as keen a fan of football as he was, when living in Glasgow, he wouldn't attend a Celtic vs Rangers game because of the attendant mayhem. This was during the 1950's, however, a long time ago.
Btw, orange was my favo(u)rite colo(u)r on the pre 2010 V's. Good luck, and please keep us informed of your search.
