Saturday Morning and after a longer lie on the Pillow than normal left me too late to go on the Club spin, so a solo Cycle was the order of the day.
Bar the Wind it was a near perfect Morning to get out in to the dry lanes and get a few miles in. I initially started off cruising along the Comber Greenway but then turned in to New Line then the Ballyrussell and Eden roads to come out on to the Gransha road down past La Mon Hotel and in to Lisleen road across to Moneyreagh.
Rather than take the short spin down the main road to Ballygowan I took a loop around the Tullyhubert, Monlough and Ravara road to Ballygowan then out on to the Saintfield road for a bit before taking the Carsonstown road across to the Killyleagh road for the spin through Darragh Cross and down to Derryboye Crossroads.
Along the Derryboye road to Balloo then through Killinchy to Whiterock and around the Strangford Lough Coast to Sketrick Island for a lunch stop at Daft Eddies. As ever there were numerous Cycling Clubs stopping in to refuel.
Fed and Watered I was on my way again taking the Ballydrain road past Castle Espie and in to Comber then sticking to the main Dundonald road as far as the Billy McNeill playing fields before joining the Comber Greenway as I wanted to see the newly installed, public facilities for Bicycle repairs.
39 miles accumulated and just home in time before the promised Rain rolled in again.
