Ride to Exeter Quay and back 2013-10-07 Light winds on the way to the Quay and a head wind on the way back. New walking boots at Framers Friend. Wearing out the soles of walking boots every years must mean we are walking the dog too much.
Bike ride to work 2014-03-14 Needed to go into work and wife needed the car for the mile trip into her work so hubby had a 20 mile round trip to work by bike. OK - so she did have to come home at lunchtime for Scooby hound but...

Another twenty miles 2016-10-20 Third day in a row of cycling into Exeter and back. Every day is getting harder - surely that's not right! A couple of "reading breaks" on the way back.
Tags: Exeter
Hundred miles this week 2016-10-22 The fifth 20 miler of the week. I'd expected this to be a gentle cycle ride with Liz but she was all gung ho! Way faster than I was expecting and I wasn't allowed my usual stopping places to have a breather. This was the fifth day out in a row doing 20 miles meaning that the target of doing 100 miles in a week was reached with 2 days to spare.Day off tomorrow!

Another twenty miles 2016-10-26 Out with Liz for another cycle ride into Exeter and back. Trying to "power" up the bridge at Powderham, I broke 3 spokes on the rear wheel. So the last 2.5 miles are Liz alone as she went home to get the car to rescue me and the broken bike. That means the "reserve" bike tomorrow - the almost unridden Ridgeback Genesis Day Two.

Exeter and back 2016-11-19 Another 20 mile ride into Exeter and back. First ever average of 13 mph on a twenty mile ride. Storm Angus had left the flood prevention overflows in full spate in Exeter.
Tags: Exeter
Another twenty miler 2016-11-20 Well almost a twenty miler. The 2 inch rain fall in Exeter meant that the last part of the cycle path ride was under water. Hard work cycling in to the head wind that was the remnants of Storm Angus. Disappointing that the winds dropped away for the homeward leg - as shown by the drifting boats when stopping briefly at SYC.

Exeter and back 2017-02-21 Another "fast for me" ride into Exeter and back. Fast - as in more than 14mph average. There was a sod of a headwind on the way out so made up time on the way back (although I could swear that the wind changed direction just as a I started back from Exeter).
Tags: Exeter
Exeter and back 2017-02-27 A gentle ride into Exeter and back. A mixture of sunshine and showers but at least the wind was from the side. Most impressively, Liz managed to come off her bike but still remain standing at the end of the manoeuvre!

Work cycle ride 2017-07-14 Would have been a bit faster if a) an idiot car driver hadn't driven slowly down the cycle path to the Turf Locks and then cut me up at the Turf and b) my chain hadn't come off the front cog just past the Turf. On the plus side, Little Mix weren't sound checking as I went past the concert ground at Powderham.

Exeter and back 2017-07-16 It was going to be a longer ride round to Lympstone but it started raining and the wind got up. Still - first time ever with an average speed of over 15 mph! Would have been faster except for having to slow down so often for huge numbers of kids and walkers. They are also digging up the cycle path at Exe Bridges which meant walking round various diversions and not getting the full 20 miles in.

New bike wheels! 2021-06-14 Back from the bike shop in Exeter after getting a new pair of Hope 20five wheels fitted to the bike. The bloody wheels originally supplied with the Triban died when a spoke pulled through a rim and shattered the rim. Good riddance! New wheels seem fine (hard to tell with a decent tail wind pushing you along). But the gear adjustment is shagged - both front and back. I'll try to fix that before taking back to the bike shop.

Cycling into Brian 2017-10-21 In fact, Storm Brian was mostly a westerly and Liz and I were cycling mostly north / south so apart from the occasional big gust, it didn't make too much of a difference. The coffee and custard tart at Lutzys was very good!

2017 miles cycled in 2017 2017-12-02 This track reaches my target of cycling 2017 miles in 2017! Was meant to be a gentle ride to Lutzys for lunch but a torn wall on the side of Liz's tyre meant that we had to abandon and get a new tyre. Then into Exeter Quay a little later reaching the 2017 mile mark somewhere near the Turf Locks.
