Another not too bad weekend, some sunshine, cloud and 12-15 mph wind. Decided to go a route that would take me over the Erskine bridge, hadn’t been on this bridge and I was curious. It’s a long ride and I would be riding against the wind for the most of it until I swung round and hit Paisley then the wind would be behind me I’m not a fan of riding in big cities but Paisley was quite nice until I hit Glasgow and the traffic Anyway 95 miles knocked out and I’m not too tired.
Well it’s a nice sunny day so I decided to to my Ochils Full Loop which normally is around 82 miles but I wanted to ride 100 miles today so I continued on until I hit may mark. Not too windy but because I’m doing a loop I would hit one direction and have it behind me another and then hit it again to bump up my mileage. All in all a good days ride and even after a 100 miles i’m tired but not FUBAR which can happen on some of my long distance riding
Another ridiculously windy day with heavy rain, but thankfully I managed to miss most of the rain, wind was bad enough Did a loop to Glasgow and back so head wind all the way to Glasgow but tail wind all the way home Happy days.
Bit of a dull day with a few spots of rain and the wind was manageable so did a loop around Loch Leven, even stopped by the Loch to have lunch. Can’t say I’m getting any faster in these rides but I am maintaining my average.
Well it’s another not a bad bank holiday weather wise, still a little windy but the sun is out so did a quick Fintry loop. Given the wind speed that’s actually a good average speed, fighting the head wind all up the hills, and then had it behind me on the flat into Stirling, happy with that
Well first long distance ride of the year and I have sore legs :-(. Riding against a 16 mph headwind just hurts, thank god it was behind me for the way home otherwise I would have caught the train home. Note to self riding on the A92 probably not a good idea people treat it like a motorway, scary just like the A9 which I avoid at all costs!
