Saturday club run on a ok weather day, I actually managed to keep up with the group the entire route even over knock hill Not sure why, it felt like they were going at a sensible pace over the hill but looking at the stats this was the fastest climb I’ve ever done over the hill. Anyhow not complaining glad to have a good ride today as tomorrow looks to be a wash out weather wise
On a cold and wet day the club ride was basically a figure 8 over knockhill and around Loch Leven. This was enough for me as I was still tired from yesterdays effort and with the rain on I was getting wet and cold.
A wee bit chilly this morning but a large group of us turned up for the ride. Slightly dull day but no rain and low winds so it was onwards and upwards as usual.
So this mornings club run was a hillier route which reflects the lower avg speed but it was still a hard ride. Riding on roads some of which I’ve never ridden before, it was a sunny day but a cold one at that and we even went over Lomond Hills which was a first for me and a slog to climb. All in all nearly 60 miles clocked up and I was able to keep up with the group most of the time, except when going up the hills.
This mornings bun run there were only 2 of us but that’s fine by me. The first 30 miles were fine and dry but the next 25 where raining so by the time I got back home I was wet It was a longer run today with the usual run down to Kincardine but this time we went around Loch Leven which was good for me as we would pass my home on the way back to Dunfermline rather than finishing the ride in Dunfermline and me having to ride back to crossgates. Fast ride again today but this time I was able to keep up with the other guy, most of the way, I got dropped going up the hills but not by much, all in all a good days ride
This mornings club run and it was actually a nice day with some sunshine no rain and a little wind
Tough run today just due to the speed and distance and probably because I hadn’t cycled in 2 weeks, but at least we had good weather sunny and dry with some wind but nothing too drastic. Managed to keep up with the group up to about 60 miles but after that I had to drop off and cycle my own pace as I was tired and wanted to get home in one piece but I still managed to achieve an avg speed of 17 mph
A tough run this morning doing the fast run at nearly 60 miles and the weather didn’t help with it being windy and raining Only 3 of us today but given the weather I wasn’t surprised. Even with the tailwind on the leg home I was starting to struggle around the 50 miles mark, I suspect yesterdays run had something to do with that. I even got a puncture 3 miles from home, thankfully it wasn’t 3 miles out from home, that would have sucked
So this mornings fast club run was a better affair, back to the normal route and thus I was able to keep up all the way even though it was a little wet and windy
OMG!! no one said anything about doing a 75 mile club run this morning, usually it’s around the 40 ish miles and this is the fast run! I only had 1 water bottle, usually I would carry 2, and I only had a couple of energy gels. Suffice to say the gels got tanked and the water bottle just made it to the cafe stop, thankfully I got a refill. But the ride back to Dunfermline was brutal they were hammering it and by the time we hit 65 miles I was shattered and got dropped Thankfully by this point we were near Dunfermline and I wasn’t too far back. Crawled home at a slow pace. Thats the fastest 75 miles I’ve ever done with an avg speed of 18 mph, usually it would take me 5 hours to do that! just as well it was a flat run with no hills. So I’m soar and so tired and collapsed on the bed for an hour before I could muster up the energy to get in the shower. Oddly enough it’s a nice sunny day with little wind so at least I got decent weather
