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 2017-02-06 Super fast on the way out. A bit slower on the way back. The last five miles were into a fairly strong headwind right on the nose. That and pouring rain and the cold put a slight damper on the last quarter!

Exeter and back 2017-04-14 Wanted a nice gentle ride as it was the first time back on the bike in three weeks - a camper van trip and a slow to end lurgie having got in the way. And a nice gentle ride with Liz it was.
Tags: Exeter
Exeter and back 2017-04-16 Into Exeter and back. A fair old head wind on the way out but speedy on the way back. Not a bad average for me given that I'm still not fully over the lurgie I've had for the last couple of weeks.
Tags: Exeter
Exeter and back 2017-04-17 In to Exeter on the Marin bike. Stopped at SYC on the way back to watch Liz and Nigel on the safety boat. About the same strength and direction wind as yesterday so it seems that the posh bike makes me about 1.5 mph faster.

Bike ride into Exeter 2017-07-02 A leisurely bike ride into Exeter with Liz. Liz's first time on the bike in a while. Combine that with hundreds of ISCA Academy 10 year olds vying to see which one of them could throw themselves under Liz's front wheel first, and the average speed makes more sense. Stopped at SYC on the way back.

Another puncture 2019-03-27 Met up with Liz after she'd finished work and cycled into Exeter for lunch at Mrs Lutzys. Cycling back, I got a puncture. It was bad enough that the "snake eyes" double puncture highlighted that I'd been under inflating the tyres. What was much worse was that while I'd managed to bring the right sized spare tube for the new bike, I'd neglected to bring one with the right valve type to fit through the wheel. Trying to use a 20 year old puncture repair kit didn't work too well either. So Liz cycled on home and came back to rescue me from the canal car park by the Swans Nest for the second time in about 4 months.

Exeter ride 2019-03-23 Into Exeter with Liz for lunch at Mrs Lutzy's. A rather slow ride as Liz had a bad knee and was really only riding with one leg. I'm assuming if she'd had two legs available we'd have averaged 18 mph...
