- Every day should start like this…
Great pics guys. KCR where was your picture taken?
I went out on a fifty mile hilly road ride, I fished my bike out of the car checked to see if I had a tube, found I hadn’t but thought it’s too good a day to waste. So went for it. I’m glad I did, I saw more cyclists than cars on lovely quiet back roads. I dodged the headwinds through the valleys and on the climbs then picked up a huge tailwind home. Road rides that good don’t happen too often.Posted 4 years agopeterfileMember
Woke up early, kissed mrs file as she left for work and pretended I had some important stuff to do….
45 minutes later I was starting the Glen Loin loop on the new steed. Still buzzing after getting back to Arrochar, with plenty of life left in the legs, I decided to push half way up Ben Donich and charge back down. Bliss.

Peterfile in “cycling post” shocker!
Tell me about it! 2 years and 2 months after being told to stay off the bike, I’m finally back in the saddle 🙂
Honestly, it felt like something out of a cheesy Hollywood movie as I rode that loop, grinning like a maniac and just enjoying being on a bike.
Although, I was half way up Ben Donich, looking back at what I was about to ride down and suddenly thought….hmmmm, this is how you ended up having to take an extended holiday from bikes in the first place you muppet! Enthusiasm > Skills 🙂
Fingers crossed, I’ve been strengthening my core gradually for a long time now and not had any further problems.
I honestly can’t believe how much I missed being on a bike. I was dancing in the car the whole way up the A82!Posted 4 years ago
