Friday evening Arthur's seat training
Best way is do the climb then straight back down (on the streets) & up again – the rest of the lap is a pure slog.
Agreed. Though once I've been up and down the main climb a few times I continue on past Dunsapie Loch, then down the hill a bit, but cut off and ride through the path that goes through the middle of the park to get my off-road fix. It's a wee bit bumpy, but my commuting bike manages no bother.Posted 8 years agodirtygirlonabikeMember
a bit better, thanks. stairs are a nightmare but i can walk a bit better. thankfully cycling doesn't hurt it (as long as i stay seated which is giving me a sore rear! i was cursing going up dukes pass on wednesday sitting down all the way!) been cycling around town picking up a few things i need – its a nightmare in town with all the closed roads/diversions. drivers seem to be much more unaware of cyclists as well, or just not willing to give extra space/time with all the other things going on.
i will probably be riding on sunday if i can manage three days in a row if anyone is around. is there a TBC road ride this week? probably not knowing my luck – first weekend in about a year where i'm not running so able to ride both days and could make it! is the col d climpy route (sp?) on the TBC website?Posted 8 years ago
I'm offski this weekend or I'd join you. I'm away up to Glencoe for a week, but I'll be taking the tourer for some ongoing road action. So – no organised ride. The next one we have planned is 25th April for our Etape Caledonia recce. I'll post up something here about it anyway
Col du Climpy route is here… http://www.thebikechain.co.uk/store/content/115/Road-Route-2—Col-du-Climpy/
Can't say I've noticed any problems with the traffic in town. I guess I've just got so used to it now. The only other thing which might affect it this week would be a greater than average number of tourists/holidaymakers?Posted 8 years ago
