Well it has been a fun filled few days of fabulous fitness forays and fantastic friends.
On Saturday morning, The Quintessential Quartet, (myself, Beth, Dolly and Kenny (Beth's bike)) had an extremely enjoyable cycle from Broxburn over the Forth Road Bridge to Aberdour. Although it was touch and go for a while if we would actually make it out of Kirkliston, as Kenny got a puncture. Pesky glass. We had all the necessary fixing equipment except the pump! Thankfully a fellow cyclist, with the most amazing psychedelic cycling leggings stopped to rescue us. Patched and pumped, we pedalled on not actually really knowing where we were going. As it turned out we had a wee tour of the Fife coastal route and very pretty it was too. All in all about a 30 mile round trip. Good training but still a long way to go before feeling confident about the 100 miler. Eek.
Excellent catch up chats were also had with Hazel and Emma. I even got smiles from Isabella. Happy times.
