Well winter is coming as it barely got above 10 degrees centigrade and I was wearing 3 layers and full gloves, although I was still in cycling shorts Decided to do an East bound ride rather than the usual West bound ride and the wind was blowing to the South so I didn’t have to worry about that too much. Along to Glenrothes and up to Milnathort along the A91 which I hand’t been along in a while. at least this section. Up to Yetts o’ Murchart and over Knockhill along to Kingseat to skip out Dunfermline and back home. 47 miles clocked up at an avg speed of 16 mph, all in a mornings ride
Another dull wet and windy day so its back to the Saturday club bun run again. I changed this up a little bit by skipping out Dunfermline on the return and heading straight to Kelty and returning home via Hill of Beath.
Another dull wet day, so again nothing special today other than the usual Sunday bun run skipping out Knockhill due to my lack of wet gear and me not wanting to be out in the rain for too long.
On a dull wet day I decided to just stick to the club bun run, wasn’t really in the mood for anything longer and I didn’t trust the weather.
Well it’s a nice sunny day so I decided to ride to St Andrews. 2 hours and 7 mins to ride the 40 miles to St Andrews proves I was hammering this with an avg speed of over 18 mph. Probably not a good idea but I stopped there for some lunch. Now the hard part, the route I had planned home was a far more lumpy affair to the flat down hill route to St Andrews and I was still riding hard so this hurt, the last 5 miles are up hill so I was really struggling by this point as I was almost out of energy, I could barely muster 250 watts so it was a slow affair going up hill. But by the time I got home I had still managed to maintain an avg speed of nearly 17.5 mph which I suspect is probably the fastest 75 mile ride I have on record frigging tired now though.
Another warm but overcast windy day but this time it had the cheek to rain on me Decided to keep todays ride about bun run distance, I’m still a little tired from yesterdays ride. Did a ride that skipped most of the hills out so it was first along to Kelty and then down to Saline. Through Forestmill and down to Kincardine and along the cost back home. As per usual I would be fighting the headwinds on the outward leg and tailwinds on the homeward leg. I wasn’t expecting it to rain and thankfully it wasn’t hard or long as I had no wet gear what so ever on me. But because the weather was unpredictable I kept my foot down for most of the ride hence the 17 mph avg speed
Decided to cycle to Perth, I haven’t been there in a while and it’s a good distance to do as I was looking for about 60 miles today. It’s warm but overcast, still a bit windy but since I’m doing a north south route I wasn’t going to hit the wind too much. What I would be doing is climbing a few hills today and I wanted to do all of this before lunch time. So over Knockhill first then Dunning hill and down to the valley then up over a small hill and down to Perth. I stopped for about 10 mins to grab a bite to eat and then headed on again. Down to Bridge of Earn and then up Glenfarg which would be the last major climb of the day. Along to Scotlandwell and around Loch Leven and back home via Lochgelly and Cowdenbeath, clocking up 63 miles at an avg speed of 16 mph, back home just in time for lunch
