Mid Week Cycle 27th June

It's been raining off and on all day. I was struggling to get motivated to go out for a cycle so I grabbed the Kona and went for a shorter spin through the mud and around John Muir Country park.

Out past the new bridge and I rewarded myself for going out in the rain. I stopped and managed to get the Kelly Kettle going for a brew. I had brought some wood scraps and newspaper as it would have taken all evening to cut up dry wood.

Unsurprisingly there was no-one else around. I was soaked but relaxed just listening to the birds out in the bay and the rain falling softly.

On the way back this young fellow came over to the fence. I got a quick pic as his mum herded him away.

Around two hours for a wet and muddy 9 miles (and a cuppa). As usual I just enjoyed getting out and clearing my head. My fitness has definitely improved from getting base miles in on the Falcon and playing around in the woods had me thinking of all those miles of empty beach!!! Oh for a fat bike. 

14 degrees, no wind, Scottish rain.


  1. You said it... you need one! -:)

  2. Glad I found this blog, and wish I could visit Scotland someday. I'll settle for visiting via blog for now.

    1. Thanks Chris, I've been visiting Texas vicariously through your posts for some time. They are a welcome treat with the morning coffee.
