Back on the Summer Bike this Evening for a steadier spin, keeping a limit on the energy output just getting some miles in without accruing too much stress on the leg muscles. I set off through Dundonald on the Newtownards road then a draggy climb up the Belfast road for a nice descent down Bradshaws Brae in to Newtownards passing Kiltonga.
From Newtownards it was up the Scrabo road with the scenic views across the fields to Strangford Lough and beyond. Descending the Ballyrainey road exercising caution due to the recently laid loose stone chippings I started to feel a few spots of Rain against my skin. The Sky was looking grim and I briefly thought about cutting my ride short and returning home but quickly snapped out of it and continued on up the Ballystockart road, down the Hillsborough road and in to Comber then out the Killyleagh road and up the Tullynagee road to Kilmood.
The threat of Rain never materialised despite the ominous Clouds overhead so I cracked on along the Ballybunden and Moss road in to Ballygowan then along the Ravara and Lisdoonan roads to come out at Carryduff and with the main road now relatively quiet I took the main road down to Forestside and home for a nice steady evening spin.
