I've got hooked on Strava!

What used to be going out for bike ride and enjoying the scenery and the weather, if that's been possible in Scotland this summer, has now turned into a race against segments on Strava, the app for smart phones and Garmins!
Last night I decided on an assault on the "barking dog" segment up the Pentlands, so named because the route resembles a dogs head (quite original) , the magic time to beat being one hour. Conditions were not really ideal but I managed to do it in 59 minutes 33 seconds to lie third overall! Downside was I hardly slept all night as the adrenalin was still pumping round my body!
