Stage 1 of the Women's Tour of Scotland = Cancelled.   

With the rain this morning I was surprised it actually started. I had been looking forward to seeing the finish as it was practically going past my house.
Typically it was sunny by the time it had been due to be in Dunfermline.IMG_0135.jpg

A knife-wielding cyclist snatched a mobile phone from a man during an early morning robbery in Renfrewshire.

The 29-year-old victim was targeted on Lady Lane, Paisley, at around 5.30am on Saturday after being approached from behind near the Co-op Funeralcare building.

The masked robber - who was using a scarf to cover the lower-half of his face - threatened the man with a knife and demanded money, which was refused.

 

The cyclist then grabbed the phone from his victim's hand and peddled off on his orange bike towards George Street.

He is described as having short hair and was wearing a tracksuit.

Detective constable Heather Strathearn is appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have witnessed the robbery to get in touch.

She said: "If you witnessed what happened or recognise the description of the man who carried out the robbery please get in touch."

I have a week away from the salt mines so I’ve taken myself off on a wee tour of central Colorado. 100 miles in, a bit sunburnt but loving life.

I'll leave it until the last minute to check the weather. You doing the 50 or the 100? 

I'm not sure I trust these c***s after their hilariously false total ascent description for the Cairn o'Mount challenge and route selection 😂

ETA: Does ThisTimePerthshireNonce spend all day waiting for someone to post on this thread? Fucking tragic 😂

The 50, not fit enough for the 100. Fancied this as an alternative to PFS

The 100 has something like 6500 feet of ascent. I'll prob just do the 50 if i can be arsed and the weather isn't too shite

Why do you keep the luggage on the front wheel, thought it would be more stable steering on the back? Probably showing my ignorance here.

It’s a personal preference but I find it better to balance the weight by taking some of the load off the back wheel. Kind of academic on this trip because I’m not carrying that much anyway but I usually have a tent, sleeping bag, cooking gear and whatnot and I put those on the back rack.

Looks awesome, you jammy b*****d


It really has been great although...today was a bit of a pig. Grinding uphill for miles on the shoulder of a busy highway with artics buzzing by just feet away. Still, the beer at the end is hitting the spot.

Lost my only Strava KOM (which has stood for 3 years), which was beaten by 13 seconds, with the rider averaging 34.6 mph for 0.7 miles , on a slightly uphill gradient  :o

This guy was either ;

A. An absolute beast, ( in that case chapeau) 

B. On an electric bike 

C. A cheating Cnut in his car

Or he had a 20 mph tailwind.  I got one today for the same reason. 😎
