So pleased with myself! I ended up doing 190.6 miles of cycling this week! My goal had been 200 miles, but still more than pleased with that total!

Need to wear this, more often!

I was speaking to one of very, very, cute friends from the USA the other day. He was like Gordon, why don’t you often wear my favourite cycling gear? So of course, I wanted to keep him happy!! 😉

Before and after my bike got fixed!

So glad, my bike has been fixed now and had a full service!

Here is what he looked like, before it got fixed! Sorry my bike is male, why would I want to ride a female! LOL!


Here is what, he looks like now! Just like having a new bike again! 🙂

Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 bike is back on the road!

Happy days! At long, long last, I’ve got my Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 bike fixed and fully serviced! I broke one of the cranks, way back in July of last year! So just need to put a new pedal on him and he’s good to go!!

It also needed, two new break pads, bottom bracket and a very good wash!


Had my newest bike for a whole year!

Can’t believe it was a year ago today, that I got the Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 from Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative. Of course, I need to thank my Mum once again for getting it for me! Since getting him, he’s done 4,467.8 miles! Not been serviced once in that time! Which I do really need to change!

I will leave you with some photos of him! 🙂

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!!

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