Tag: 30 to 39 miles

1,000 miles of cycling at long last!!

That’s me just 1,000 miles of cycling at long last, during 2022! Still, way behind on this point last year, when had done 2,228 miles. Still hoping, I will end the year on at 1,800 miles!

Oh and it was around 26C during the cycle, so my Lycra was getting nice & sweaty! 😈

Cycling down Lag Lane

Another good cycle, this time Rutland Water

That was another great cycle! This time, I cycled from home around Rutland Water via Oakham! Also my second 30+ mile cycle of the week! Now at 93.1 miles so far this week! So will hit the first 100 mile week, so far this year!

But still got a lot, more to do this month! Right now, only done 127.5 miles when my goal for the month is at least 425.8 miles! I doubt, I will make it! But I will see what I can do!

Had fun looking at the Grantham Southern Relief Road

That was a great cycle! The longest of the year so far, at 34.13 miles. Also had a look at the first part of the Grantham Southern Relief Road. Which will take the A52 away from the town centre. But it’s a good number of years away from opening! Which now, it’s just a road to nowhere! But believe, they will be linking it up the A1 next. With work staring at some point this year.

But since it’s not open at all right now, to traffic. I had a good look around and also took some photos!

Crow Road and the Stockiemuir cycle

That truly was an amazing cycle! First time, I’ve done in Scotland in a long time! This route, more than made for not cycling in Scotland for a good number of years!

The cycle took me from Killearn to Balfron, then to Fintry then over the Crow Road! Then into Strathblane, up onto the Stockiemuir then back into Killearn via Gartness Road!

Check out the killer hills the route took me over @ www.strava.com/activities/725740790.

Longest cycle on the new bike…

That’s me not long back in from doing the longest cycle on the bike so far! I did 36.45 miles! I would have liked to have done over 40 miles! But all the rain, wind and even the hail was starting to do my head in! It’s feeling more like February, than late April! I am normally out in my shorts by now! It’s still way, way to cold for that!!
