Cycling plans in motion

⚠️ This is an old post

It's possibly been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the years. That probably means, at best, there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any advice is probably out of date and irrelevant. Or it is really old, it was the wafflings of a teenager with too much time on his hands working out what blogging is… If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.

You've been warned! Onwards…

Ages ago I remember being told that 'ideas are cheap'. Ideas come and go quickly. To often for me that is where they stay, as ideas. Rarely do I actually kick those ideas into the real world. Yesterday I put into action something that I had been thinking about for a couple of weeks - taking a week in July and go cycling around bits of Scotland.

One of the things I realise is that it is a bad idea just to jump into this without preparation. Independently of the Scotland idea I had set myself the goal of doing 500km in the month of May. Strava tells me that in the last 9 days I've reached 196km, so I am thinking that I may have to push the target a bit, and at the same time do more longer rides.

During my time in Scotland I will be based in Edinburgh. I know that one of the rides will be out to visit the Falkirk Wheel, however the other rides have yet to be determined. Ideas, suggestions and recommendations are welcome!

Re: Yesterday's post.

It would appear that my initial fear of the print work coming back today was unfounded. A large box full of flyers arrived today all looking good. You can see them on my Dunked Portfolio.
