Aug ’17 Cycling Dist. Challenge – Ride 6

Woke up to a pretty nice morning with cloud and light wind, rain was forecasted so I packed my waterproof jacket into my jersey pocket but pleased that I didn’t have to use it.

Last night I visited Decathlon and picked up a new pair of cycling shorts, a shirt and long sleeve jersey – I wore these this morning and very impressed. Time will tell how they hold up but initial thoughts are very good over the 1hr50 minutes I cycled today.

Rather than going the flat route to Kilmacolm and back I came off at Bridge of Weir and took the Torr Road into Kilmacolm that way. There are no steep climbs this way but some rolling hills and different surfaces to make the route a little less boring.

Taking this route is a couple of miles longer so today I covered 25 miles which leaves me 638 miles to go.
