Reached the 9500 mile target tonight.
Just Roger and me tonight as I went for the 9500 mile target on the Trek in the two and a half years since I got it. I needed 22 miles tonight and the prospects didn't look good with the rain getting heavier by the minute and the wind gusting to gale force. But we Scots are a hardy bunch, actually Roger's English, so I'd better say "we British" and we set off up the Pentlands into the teeth of the gale! No actual mishaps tonight, though at one point I was nearly blown backwards by the wind and it was a relief when we turned for home with the wind in our tails. The 22 mile target was reached with a bit to spare so the next target is the magic 10000 miles!
