Tag: 30 to 39 miles

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!!

Longest cycle of the year! 34 miles!

That’s well pleased! I’ve not long back in from the longest cycle of the year! I did 34.59 miles! My avg speed was not the best at only 10.6 mph. Still I am more than happy! Just myself and the bike need a good wash! After cycling to, then around Rutland Water!

During the cycle, I also did some more Geocaching. I found 9 during the cycle, which takes my total finds up to 207! So should make my goal of 250!

02-Jul-2015: First cycle of the month!

I was hoping to get out yesterday for a cycle. But had to wait till today! Yesterday the temperature in my part of the UK got up to 35C, which if you ask me, is just way to hot for cycling in!

So today, I did 34.10 miles on the bike. Which I am more than happy with! But this month cycling wise is going to be hard work! Since in July of last year, I did 705.2 miles! I need to get a hell of a lot of miles in this month!!

I will now leave you with the route map, route statistics and photos.

29-Jun-2015: That was a good 30 mile cycle!

That was a good cycle! Even found a new road, I’ve always past and never noticed it before! I only did 30 miles, I was hoping to do more. But had to get back to pick a mate up from the train station.

So far this year, I’ve only done 1,056.8 miles. By this time last year, it was 2,730.5. So I am 1,673.7 miles down! On the same point last year! Can’t see me making them number of miles up, before the end of the year! 🙁

26-May-2015 : Four county’s cycle

Since I cycled in three county’s yesterday. Wanted to go one better and take in four this time! I started off in Lincolnshire, the county I live in. Also covered Rutland, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire. They are in no order at all. Since I went in and out of both Rutland and Lincolnshire a number of times.

During this cycle I covered 37.16 miles. Making it the longest cycle of the month so far! So just have hope, the weather is also good, this Thursday. Since it’s the last chance, I have the time, to get a long cycle in!

I will now leave you with the route map, elevation graph and route statistics.

17-Feb-2015 : First good cycle of the year

Hoping that at long last this year, I am going to start getting back into cycling. So far this year, I have only done 82 miles. When normally by now, I’ve done at least 500 miles. So this month, I am going to have to try to get more of miles in. Which is not going to be easy. Since more than half the month is already gone. And I’ve only done one cycle! But at least at 38.84 miles, it was a good one! 🙂

16-Apr-2014 : Fun mini 32 mile cycle!

At long last starting to get some miles in! Did 50.81 miles yesterday and 32.26 miles today. So since Monday (14th April) that takes my total up to 104.96 miles. So not bad in just 3 days I guess. Tomorrow, I will try to get at least 40 miles in. Which will get my monthly total so far, to around 300 miles.
