Sunday run report

Sunday run regular Allan McCrimmon sent in this report:

The route i had in mind went out the window as the back roads were a little icy. There were six riders out today, Denis, Col, Eve, Lorne, Debbie and I. We opted for the two bridges route and set of at a steady 16mph.

The weather was fantastic with sunshine and blue skies, although it was a little chilly in the shade. As the sunday run is a social ride we agreed to stop for a coffee and cake at Couros. Some of us had forgotten there wallets so many thanks to Eve for paying and saving us from washing the dishes!

This was Debbie's longest ride so far and she struggled a little but the cake and tea gave her a second wind, which got her back home, well done Debbie.

Eve was looking very strong today so we rode up to Faucheldean, Ochiltree and Ricarton farm to add some pain and finish her off! Well done Eve you get stronger every week.

The average speed today, taken from denis's trusty bike computer, was 14.5 mph and distance was 45 miles, although probably nearer 70 for Col as he had cycled out from bonny bridge. Thanks to everyone who turned up today good ride everyone.

After recovering Debbie said "Great run this morning - thanks everyone for your patience and encouragement and especially for agreeing to the cafe stop, without which I may have had to pull the "puncture trick". Thanks Eve for treating everyone. After leaving the group at Winchburgh I took my time, getting home about 1ish. At the end, my computer said 57miles and 13.5mph, which beats my previous longest run (last week with the East Calder Crew) by almost 20 miles"
