Tag: 60 to 69 miles

Mini railway station tour by bike, 62.43 miles

That sure was a great cycle! Did 62.43 miles, so making it the second longest cycle of the year so far! It could well be my favourite cycle, of 2018! Since I cycled along part of the  Grantham Canal. Then stopped off at Bottesford, to get some food, and also check out it’s railway station!

Then it was off to Elton and Orston railway station, which is one of the least used stations in the UK. It only gets two services a day. One to Nottingham at 6:25am and other service to Skegness at 5.10pm. There is no Sunday service. A normal service operates on most bank holidays.

Then it was back home passing Belvoir Castle! So over all, a great cycle!!

26-Aug-2014 : Great 60 miles on the bike!

That turned out to be a great 60 mile cycle on the bike. Very pleased with the number of miles I did, since when I set off my goal was only 40 miles. Just not so happy with the average speed of only 11.9 mph. Then it was a bit on the windy side for most of the cycle.

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

19-May-2013 : theBythams – Thorney – Stamford cycle

Well then, after doing today’s 63.77 mile cycle! I have now done just over 29,000 miles of cycling since April 2003! Which I am very pleased with to say the least! I was hoping to do more than 63.77 miles, but I had to get home to walk the dogs! Now I am at 29,000 miles, it’s looking very likely, I will hit the 30,000 mile mark by July!! 🙂

21-Apr-2013 : I made it to The Wash!

I am so happy, I made it the whole way The Wash for the very first time! If you have no what The Wash is, then check out en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wash. Only bad thing is go all that way and can’t see any water! Still at least I can say I have made it. Been on my list of cycles for a number of years now!

09-Apr-2013 : Second 60+ mile cycle of 2013!!

Just back in from what is only my second 60+ mile cycle of the year. I made it all the way to Burton on the Wolds (Just 4 miles east of Loughborough). So covered a lot of new roads. I will need to do that route again and maybe next time go to whole way in Loughborough. I also cycled that far, the GPS did not have maps for that area. So very glad, I had a OS map on me!!

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

21-Mar-2013 : First 60+ mile cycle of 2013!!

Just done my first 60+ mile cycle of the year!! When I set off, I was going to be happy with just 40 miles. But since I was racing a mate via twitter. I had to keep going.  Also I wanted to cover lots of new roads. Which I did! Look at the blue on the map below! I think I will do, most if not all of that route again at some point. When I do first 100+ cycle of the year. Think I will use, lots of it.

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