A dull wet day so did a sprint around the forth river. Had no wet gear with me so I had my foot down all the way round as I was getting wet, hence this is the fasted forth loop I’ve ever done
Well it started out as a dull day but again after lunch it got sunny. Decided to ride to Prestonpans, I’ve never been there before and it’s a coastal ride which is quite scenic. It’s a flat ride with a little wind on the coast but all and all a pleasant days ride.
Bit of a dull wet day, although it did start to dry out towards lunch time. Went for a quick ride around the area to work up an appetite for lunch.
Well it’s the perfect day to go cycling, hot sunny day all day long, and as luck would have it I was doing the Evans Cycles Ride It event in Lanark today. Given the weather today I opted to do the long route of 80 miles rather than the medium route I had entered for. It was well worth the effort, a good ride with not too many hills but a bitch of a 14% hill 3 miles from the finish. I didn’t stop too much as I was against the clock, had to be back to the finish before 17:00. I actually shot our of the starting blocks but slowed slow in the hills and the last 20 miles I was a little on the slow side, but I clocked up the 80 miles in just over 5 hours so I’m pleased with that. No doubt next week it will piss down.
Quick ride this morning in preparation for tomorrows event.
