Another sunny very cold day and quite surprisingly there were 12 of us today which is the largest Sunday ride group I’ve seen in a long time. Usual route today over knockhill first and down to Dollar heading to coalsnaughton but the group split at this point as some went for a cafe stop and the rest of us carried on. Didn’t bother with the cafe stop as there are too many of use to fit into the cafe and stick to the new COVID 19 rules. It also means I get home quicker for a hot shower and lunch, and just in time to watch the last hour of the World cycling championships
Well it’s a sunny day but OMG it’s cold! full bike gear, 3 layers on time. About 10 of us today which means no cafe stop and I even got a puncture Some quick stops to fix puncture and grab a bite to eat and the ride was over. Nothing too fast today so about avg speed as always.
On a dull slightly damp day 6 of us turned up for the Sunday bun run, the winds are light and no rain forecast for the day. It was another no stop day due to COVID restrictions but not a big deal, I did stop at Kincardine to eat an energy bar but that was about it. Not too shabby an avg speed of 16 mph today although I did go a slightly different route home and went up the hill from Inverkeithing to Crossgates which gave me a little bit more mileage that usual.
With the new COVID measures starting this week the bun run today was a different affair. With 11 of us riding we would be doing the route without stopping due to the new restrictions. This didn’t bother me as I’m used to it so it was a straight run around the loop today back home about 30 min earlier than usual
Another wet and windy day only this time windier than yesterday and again only 4 of us on the bun run. I took the front for the outward leg which meant I was head wind all the way to the cafe stop but because its quite warn today I was soaked with sweat rather than rain by the time I got there. Coffee and cake consumed and I was at the back for the homeward leg but given the conditions I wasn’t any slower than yesterday so I’ll take that
It was a wet windy day today and given the crap weather I wasn’t expecting anyone to turn up but in the end 3 other people turned up to make a group of 4 Given the bad weather I was in full cycling gear with my water proof jacket. Thankfully the rain was off and on most of the time so I didn’t get too wet. Given the windy conditions we weren’t cycling very fast today with and avg of 14 mph but we still went over Knockhill so it was a good effort today
6 of us on the Sunday bun run and a good weather day it was too, not to windy with some sunshine around. 50 miles clocked up at a good pace with no issues and a slice of carrot cake and cup of coffee to boot
Club ride returned this month yay Although numbers are limited due to stupid COVID but it was nice to get back to group rides and see the guys again. So it’s back to the usual bun run rides from now on, so a little less variety in rides but more regular that when I was going it alone Usual route today with a stiff westerly wind but that meant I got a push home. Nice to be able to get back to the cafe stops and get my scrambled egg roll and orange juice pick me up half way through the ride
