There is the small fact that although the activities of the moron minority did mar my day a little, I still was able to complete the ride without incident. I felt pretty good the whole way round and the hills I struggled on last year seemed fine this year. I was a bit surprised to see that I had done the distance in about 25 minutes longer than last year, but I put this down to having stuck over the first ten miles with a group of friends who were uncertain of the route. The bit between the outskirts of Coatbridge and the approach to Cramond was excellent but then it was slow again through Edinburgh. Ah well – good photos to show for the day at least.
