Its a very misty and cold day today, in fact we where in mist almost all the ride bar the last 10 miles or so when it finally cleared. Temp wise it was bloody cold sub zero temperatures for about half of the ride and then it only just got above freezing. 5 of us on the ride today thankfully no wind so it was a reasonable ride, bar the cold, 50 miles clocked up at avg speed of 15 mph.
On a bright sunny day with little wind but pretty damn cold, sufficient for me to have 4 layers on, we had 5 of us on the bun run. To mix it up a bit we went the wrecking crew route all the way down to Dollar and then the full route up Knockhill. Decent pace today certainly feel it in my legs now, with a avg speed of close to 16 mph I clock up 457 miles which is about 4 more than the usual route but good exercise to get me back in shape after not riding for nearly 2 weeks
A slightly better weather day today with lighter winds than yesterday and a sunnier day. The only downside was it’s a bit colder today, so I was the usual Sunday bun run today with 4 of us attending. Slightly faster than yesterday and I’m feeling that now with being so hungry after the ride. We didn’t stop at a cafe but we did stop for a quick food break, just enough time to eat an energy gel which pails to the coffee and cake I would normally have Anyway 50 miles clocked up at 15 mph about the avg for a Sunday ride.
Well after a 2 week hiatus I’m back in the saddle, having no wheels for the bike was the reason for this. Unfortunately the bearing and rims were worn out on the wheels which facilitated a new set of wheels which took a little time to get the right parts for my bike. They just arrived yesterday so I was able to get back out today Back to the usual bun run route due to everyone being in the same tier. A gentle start in the saddle today, it was a windy one with some rain and sunshine but not too cold.
So last weekends cycling was a washout due to the adverse weather conditions, so I didn’t cycle at all last week. We pick it up this week and although it’s very fogy the weather is fine, little wind and not too cold. There were 6 of us today and we did the usual loop without stopping so it was an avg 15 mph today, a steady pace to get back into the swing of things
