Another frosty cold day to be cycling but a necessary evil, I did have plans of going up Crow road (hill climb) but when I saw the snow on the hills I thought better of it. So stuck to the lowlands today cycling to Kilsyth, past Croy and onto Cumbernauld. Then from Cumbernauld to Denny and over to Stirling but turn off before hitting Stirling to head back home via Falin and Airth.
Another cold start this morning but thankfully no frost. Headed into the wind going towards Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch, then into Stepps and back through Mollinsburn and Cumbernauld with the wind to Falkirk. 47 miles clocked and back in time for lunch.
Well it was another frosty start to the day and I didn’t have anywhere in mind to ride so I headed south up to Shieldhill and let the bike take me where ever it wanted. In the end I did a kind of figure 8 through Linlithgow following the quieter country roads with a few more hills thrown in for good measure, in total clocking up 45 miles.
Well it was a cold frosty start to this mornings ride but now that I have my road bike back I wanted to test the new groupset on the hills. It was along to Longcroft and up the first hill of the day a 25% shot sharp shock to the system thank god it’s a small hill and I had very low gear ratios, on my original groupset I wouldn’t have got up it. It was then onto the Ochil hills and up to Sheriffmuir a bigger hill but not quite as mental steep as the first but there are still some 15% sections in it. Then it was all down hill to Bridge of Allan and back home again clocking up 42 miles.
