I was sure that my bike, was a write off. But lucky someone, I know had one look at it and said it was easy for him to fix! In the end, it only cost me £25! Just hope, that in August. I have a better cycling month!!!

Sorry it’s been a slow news week! Not really been doing much at all, since my bike died on my last week! All going well, should get him back in the next day or so!! Not been out a cycle now since 17th July! The second, I get him back. I will make sure, I get in lots of new cycles! Which of course, will mean lots of new Lycra photos!!

Here are some more cycling photos taken with my new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V Digital Bridge Camera that I got yesterday. Think I am getting to get use to it! Love that it’s got a GPS build in. So I will never forget where I have taken the photos. To see the location for yourself, just click on a photo below and you will see a nice map under the photo :).

I am so happy! This time I made it all the way from Killearn to Inversnaid. If you have been following this website for a good while. You may remember that way back in October 2011, I did try to do this cycle. But due to running out day light, I only made it to Loch Arklet then had to turn back. So this time, I made sure I set off at the better time. Also it helped since, I did it during summer. So had many more hours of day light to play with!

After doing this cycle, it’s going to make cycling around Lincolnshire, look very boring indeed! It may not the very good from the route map below. If you check it out on google street view, you will see why I loved doing it to much!

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