    Final spin to check bike was OK after I changed the wheels & pedals, indexed the gears etc; it's fine but flippin heck it was windy. Forecast for week is standard September stuff, windy as... read more

  2. How many of us qualify to play for Scotland? I reckon 11 of us could give them a decent game - what a lucky escape tonight...

    good Gym 18 mi 00:55 03:03 pace

    If it was crazy windy yesterday, it was completely insanely windy today so the Gentleman Cyclist went to the gym. Going to collect the jerseys from the chappie in Falkirk tomorrow

  4. Here's link to a Scottish word, used most days in winter to describe the weather;

    alright Commute 23 mi 01:28 15.7mph pace

    Crazy windy today, still been no rain in Perth for over 2 weeks now which qualifies as a drought in these parts...

    alright Rhynd Loop 17.8 mi 01:02 17.2mph pace

    Just a short spin to keep the legs turning over. Busy in the garden the rest of the day.

    good Stronachie Hill 31 mi 01:40 18.6mph pace

    Out with Allan and new cycling club memebr Kyle, who turns out to be a qualified MTB instructor and bike mechanic so a handy man to know. Not too shabby up the hills on a road bike either.

    great commute 23 mi 01:20 17.2mph pace

    When you think you might be getting fed up commuting on your bike, just remember how sh*te it is commuting in your car. And that you can't get parked at Inveralmond. Or get out at 5 o'clock!

  9. £75 grand in the charity pot! We'll soon be up at levels approaching the dizzy heights of Crispin's salary.

    great Commute 23 mi 01:13 18.9mph pace

    Felt tip-top today so went for my commuting-bike PB. Somehow I'm always faster heading AWAY from work...???

    good Commute 23 mi 01:22 16.8mph pace

    Lovely day, although the temperature first thing is really starting to drop now; only 3 Celcius at 7am - but the sun was shining, not a cloud in the sky

      Yeah! Up here each city takes different days - unless you work for SSE, in which case you just work all the time!

    good Perth 25 mi 01:35 15.8mph pace

    Into Perth to play badminton. The Gentleman Cyclist turned into Competitive Dad, and dished out a damn good thrashing to his 12 year old daughter. Gawd help us if it's that windy on the trip...

    Lap of Loch Leven with Cyclin... 35 mi 01:56 18.1mph pace

    A few mechanical issues - despite strict instructions not to touch my brand new rear derailleur, the bike shop tinkered with it and installed a new cable, which they hadn't tightened properly.... read more

    good Commute 23 mi 01:22 16.8mph pace

    Nice and steady today. Looks like the weather is back to front, it's lovely here and I think the south coast is getting a drenching.

    tired Etape Hibernian 90 mi 04:50 18.6mph pace

    Had a bit of a bad day. Woke up not feeling great but started the race anyway. Within about 20 miles was really struggling. Around the 40 mile mark had to stop to be sick. Managed to complete it, b... read more

      Felt grim - no idea why! By 70 miles I was back in the land of the living and going well again. The main thing was I felt fine this morning (even after a few Guinnesses), which bodes well for the event

    Passed several of my mates going the other way round the loop, obviously had the same idea! Not doing much this week as I have a sportive ride in Ireland on Sunday
