It was back to the usual bun run this morning and with the weather the same as yesterday we were into a head wind most of the way to the cafe stop. After cake and coffee it was back to Dunfermline with a tailwind assist which helped to increase my avg speed to 16 mph
When I look at the map of this route it looks like a Mushroom to me so I’m going to call this the Mushroom route So it’s a overcast slightly windy day which meant I was in the winter gear for cycling, no more short it’s on with the cycling trousers and wind jacket. Today we did a slightly different ride as some people were looking to do a longer ride which was fine with me. We did the normal bun run up to the cafe stop but after that we headed into Stirling and back around via the Kincardine bridge, almost following my old stomping ground when I lived in Falkirk. It was then back via the coastal route to Dunfirmline and home, clocking up 66 miles at a steady pace of 15 mph.
Well it was another nice day to be riding, some sun around with little wind but still a bit on the chilly side thus resulting with me wearing a base layer and jacket. Again a good ride today although only 8 of us were out today but we still managed a good time and speed Just shy of 17 mph so I’m happy with that although I was leading a big chunk of the ride so I was keeping the pace high
Yes I did forget to post this yesterday but I’m only a day late So it was a pleasant day if a bit on the cold side to start with. We had sun and little wind but it was 10 °C to begin with but thankfully after the cafe stop it started to warm up a bit. The usual bun run route but in 2 groups as there were quite a lot of us today but given the sun was out that was predictable.
As predicted there were a lot more riders today 10 of us in total and even though it was sunny we were facing a heading on the outbound leg. We even didn’t get a chance to go up Knockhill due to an accident which meant we had to detour round to Saline and miss out Dollar all together. After the cafe stop we had a tail wind assist so the ride back home was a lot faster which is why my avg was 17 mph and it’s always very satisfying to do 50 miles in under 3 hours
