Forecast is a bit mixed. The rain doesn't bother me too much, but if it's windy.... [emoji849]

At my age, everything is padded....

Wind is generally fine at PfS as it's almost always at your back. I doubt you'll have to bother pedalling at all on one or two uphills today.

Whit? Was a bit swirly, admittedly, so not ideal, but mid-teens mph "WSW" you would have wanted to be cycling to Edinburgh rather than Glasgow shirley.

My previous experience had been exactly as you suggested it would be today.

But see when I was struggling with that wee headwind before I even got out of the Weege.... [emoji19]

Was a good day, though. The swirliness added to the fun.

I took my boys down to watch for a bit (unlike most folk in Kirkliston who spent the day complaining about the road closures, miserable bassas). It was great to see people of all ages doing the ride; my eldest son fancies doing the wee jaunt next year.

Well done CwG!
