New record for Pentland 24 mile winter loop (again!!)
Baz, Clive and me set off at 6pm tonight (Sunday) for what Clive and myself thought was a gentle Sunday night ride. Baz had other ideas! My efforts on Friday night were like a red rag to a bull and he set off as if his pants were on fire with the two of us hanging in behind for grim death at first. A new fastest time at the top of the Balerno tar road only served to spur us on and even an owl nearly taking Baz out at one point couldn't stop us setting both a new fastest riding time of 2 hours 3 minutes dead as well as an overall time of 2 hours 6 minutes. That mileage also got me up to the 100 miles for the week again after I'd intended to have an easy 60 mile week!
