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! 🙂

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.

At long last, I got out my first ride on my new bike. I got my Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 on Tuesday from Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative. But I’ve had a cold/flu but thing most of the week! So going out on it, would not have been a good idea! But so pleased, I’ve got to use it at long last!

I went for a 22.81 mile cycle ride! Making it the longest Saturday ride, I’ve done this year so far! Think I’ve already, falling in love with it!

So happy my new bike got delivered today from Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative. It set me back £550. The only reason I got it, was since my Mum give myself and my bothers £1,000 each, for her 70th Birthday! Think I’ve got the worlds best MUM!!! 😀

I’ve still to give it a test ride. I really wanted to give it a go today, but trying to get over a bad cold/flu bug thinly!

Of course the big question is, do I remove the bell??
