Saturday Evening and my mate Gavin contacted me to see if I was interested in meeting up in the Morning to go for a spin on the Bicycles for a couple of hours.
It was a chilly but Sunny Morning as I waited in Lisburn for Gavin.
The original plan was to head up in to the Dundrod hills and do a few laps but as I left Belfast the hills weren’t even visible due to low cloud so we hastily changed plans to venture up the Ballynahinch road to Legacurry, Annahilt in through Ballynahinch and over to Saintfield where Gavin made a quick stop to top up on food and Water.
From Saintfield we took the main road to Crossgar keeping up a brisk pace, then a quick loo stop in Crossgar.
Having kept up a really good tempo so far Gavin wanted to ramp up the power for the next fifty minutes. We left Crossgar and ventured over to Derryboye crossroads then took a left through Raffrey and Darragh Cross back to Saintfield, on through Temple and back to Lisburn. 40 miles for me and home before the Rain.
