Dull windy day today and I’m feeling that on my legs since I spent a lot of time at the front of the group. 10 of us today and due to the wind the avg speed was a bit on the slow side and it wasn’t helped by the fact I broke my rear derailleur cable which meant I went from 22 gears to 2 gears and the toughest high gears at that Thankfully this happened at the end of the ride so I only had to ride 5 miles like that. So bikes in for a repair and service now which means no riding reports until I get me bike back
Another cold day just above freezing but at least there was 3 of us on todays ride. Nothing too eventful today did the loop at my usual 15 mph for the 50 mile ride the only difference being the weather which was fogy and cloudy for most of the day with a few sunny spells here and there.
Another one of those very bright sunny blue sky days but bitterly cold to start with and remained cold, around 1-2 degrees, for the rest of the ride. About 10 of us today doing the bun run, first event of the day was some bike rider getting knocked of his bike by a car on the roundabout just at Cairneyhill. Not someone I new but some of the other riders knew him, I think someone said he was a member of the club, either way he was taken to hospital, from the gossip I heard it wasn’t too bad and the rider was ok in the end. After the cafe stop I was leading the way home, we decided to skip out knockhill due to the icy conditions and go up Saline hill instead. I went up that pretty damn fast hence the 199 bpm which resulted in me keeping my 16 mph avg for this ride
Nearly forgot to post this Bit of a mixed bag day weather wise, rain, wind and blinding sun light. Quite a few more turned up that I expected given the weather, there were 10 of us today. I started at the bag of the group and got covered in spray so after the cafe stop I decided to lead the way back home, still had to was my rain coat though
Another cloudy mild day on the bun run, today we had 5 of us. Things were going fine after the cafe stop in Dollar until one of the guys broke 2 rear wheel spokes which of course resulted in a buckled wheel. We managed to free of the sticking brake and Robert was able to cycle back at a slower pace so today’s ride was eventful but not particularly fast.

First ride of the new years and it was a big group we had this morning, so much so we had to split into 2 groups. I’m guessing the “new years resolution” guys will eventually fade away until we are back to the regulars. Weather wise it was another mild day with a bit of wind around but nothing too drastic as we still managed to do an avg speed of 15 mph today.
First ride of 2020 and although it was a short ride it was a bit of a sprint ride. The weather for today is a bit better than yesterday, I wasn’t freezing my arse off and with it being overcast the temps were a bit higher which allowed me to go faster. I did a small loop around Dunfermline with the intention of getting an avg power of around 200 watts which I did So 18 miles clocked up at an avg speed of 17 mph, good start for the year
