Yep it’s only the first day of 2018 and I’ve already been out walk while wearing a wetsuit! Of course, I am wearing the 2XU A:1 Active wetsuit, since it’s the only wetsuit, that I have with me!

Oh and I put the wetsuit on before setting off! So in other words, I did 30 miles of driving, with a 2 mile walk in the middle! So I was nice and warm, by the time, I got back to the house!

My favourite cycle of 2017… Has to be the one and only cycle, that I did in Scotland this year. Which took me from Killearn up the side of the west side of Loch Lomond to Loch Long.

You can check out the full route and stats from the cycle @ www.strava.com/activities/971062599.

Here are some photos from the cycle, to show you, why I loved it so much!

That’s me now done 48,000.3 miles of cycling, since April 2003! Which is a hell of a long way! Should get that to over 50,000 miles before the end of the year!!

I will leave you, with some of my favourite cycling photos!

Got to say, I love cycling in Scotland! Just don’t get views like this in other parts of the UK!

That truly was a totally amazing cycle! Reminds me, why I love cycling so much! Just a great way to see amazing scenery, much better than being in a metal box!

Of course for scenery, you can’t get much better than Scotland!!! Also can tell just how much fun, I was having! Since I ended up doing the longest cycle of 2017 so far! Ended up doing 63.5 miles!

Was also good fun doing route, that I’ve not done since August 2009, when I did the End to End cycle!

You can check out the full route and stats from the cycle @ www.strava.com/activities/971062599.

I will now leave you with some photos from the cycle!!!

When you go to Loch Lomond in the evening, the last thing you think will happen is walking into Spider-Man. So no, it’s not me in this suit! Which id what happened today!

So wish, I owned a suit like that, would never want to take it off!

Here are some photos taken around the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. It was a great day out! Still can’t get over just how warm Scotland is for the time of year. Normally I would at the least have to worry about ice on the roads. All I had to worry about water on the roads and lots of it!

Could also tell it was warmer than normal. Since there was still lots of people out on there motorbikes. And of course lots of people out cycling. Seeing all the people cycling up the side of Loch Lomond. Did sort of make me wish, I had been one of them.

I will leave you will some of the photos, from today’s super day out! Please make sure you comment on some of the photos :).
