Thursday Night Ride 4th April 2013

Posted: Friday, April 5, 2013 by selhurst in night-ride

Well, I seem to recall a certain beCyClist promising faithfully to make a blog post after every single night-ride. It hasn’t quite happened yet, so here is a summary of the night-rides since there was last news on the blog:

rain, hail, sleet, snow, fixed gears, broken chains, extraordinary kindness of strangers, repaired chains, broken bottom brackets (unrepaired), Duthie Park, exploration, fun, beer.

All of which brings us to last night,  and the successful third attempt to complete a route that has twice eluded us in the past. We set off North through Bridge of Don and out into the wilds of Aberdeenshire, turning before Newmachar to head into Dyce on the Formartine and Buchan Way, which is not a road and therefore has the advantage of no cars on it to spoil your ride. Heading back to Aberdeen,  we stopped for a quick drink at the Masada bar.

See you next week?
