Well thats my first 100 miles of the year and what a nice ride it was. The weather was quite good today, a little overcast but with sunshine intermixed in and most importantly little wind. Decided I would do a loop around Loch Earn, something I had planned to do a couple of years ago but never really got around to it. Riding through the country side and Trossachs is a very beautiful place to ride especially when your cycling through the mountains. And given I did reasonably fast 100 miles I don’t feel too bad
Bit of a dull wet windy day, but better than yesterdays weather hence the ride today. Decided to ride to Loch Lomond, it’s been a while since I was there and wanted to do it at least once this year. Had lunch at Loch Lomond but of course once I finished it started to rain not too heavy but enough to make me wet through, thankfully it stopped after about 45 mins, and held off at least until I got to Kirkintilloch. So it was rain all the way to Denny where I popped into my Uncles and accidentally reset the Garmin clock which is why there are 2 activities listed today. Thankfully by the time I got back to Falkirk the sun came out and I carried on cycling until I broke 90 miles. So the stats are 92.6 miles in 5 hours and 59 mins at an avg speed of 15.6mph.
A rather wet and windy day with some sporadic sunshine, was planning to go to Crieff but then the rain came down and I had no wet gear with me. So I detoured towards Glen Eagles and headed back over the Ochils through Glendevon down to Dollar and Alva. Thankfully by the time I hit Dollar the rain had stopped so I stopped for lunch and then headed home.
It’s quit a nice day, I even got sun burnt on this ride so I decided to do the Full Ochils Loop which ironically is only around 20 miles longer than the half loop that I did last week I even managed to time it well that it started to rain just as I got home so lucked out their. 6 weeks left to my China ride so will keep up the miles until then
