episode 144: Explore | Tour d'Écosse stage 4: Ayr – Greenock


The Tour d'Écosse picks up where it left off, in Ayr, or more to the point in a pub in Ayr where Lionel and Simon have just ordered a dessert pizza that would horrify Ciro Scognamiglio and, for that matter, all Italians.

Then it's back on the road, past the golf courses that decorate the Ayrshire coast, on the roads that made the Girvan one of the toughest stage races in Britain, and via an extraordinary – if brief – Elvis impression by Simon. We sample the Killie Pie, talk Graeme Obree with Edward Pickering, author of the book The Race Against Time, and get our first glimpse of the Clyde as we arrive at Greenock Morton FC.
