On a dull windy day, after yesterdays gale force winds, I decided to stick close to home and do a quick 50 miles before lunchtime. I basically did a figure eight going to Stirling and back where I would be riding headwind first and tailwind second on each loop. It’s always a slog into the wind and because I was trying to keep my average up my legs are knackered now, anyway I got 50 miles under 3 hours so I’m happy with that.
Well it started out as a dull windy day but has actually turned out to be a nice afternoon, warm too. So decided to cycle to Balloch, going North via Milton Campsie and returning South via Dumbarton, Bearsden and Kirkintilloch. It was windy on the out ride but turned into a nice day for the return ride. All in all 75 miles clocked up if you go by the Garmin which decided to stop at the start and I didn’t notice it until I got to Bonnybridge which would have made it an 80 mile ride
Bit of a dull windy warm day, with rain the morning I chose to ride after lunch so did a small loop around Kirkliston, returning home via Bathgate.
Overcast day with some sunny spells here and there but little wind, unfortunately rain scheduled for this afternoon so I decided to do my Forth loop today. Quick ride today due to the forecast of rain I wanted to get back home before lunch time. Not a bad time clocked up 2 hours 12 mins with an average of 18 mph, not the fastest time I’ve done it, that was 2 hours 9 mins but a third place best time for me so I’m happy with that
