ooh naughty boy, there's a 15mph limit for bikesTetedelacourse said:Today.
On the bottom ring on the Forth Road Bridge and managed to hit around ooh24kph as I came down the other side (usually it's around 45). Looking at metcheck, the whole week's looking breezy. Is this it for the next few months?
Really?? I've never heard of anyone actually being blown off their bike! Qualitas if it's true! (and hope you're ok natch).CarnageAX said:I got blown off on my bike today.
Gav, I now join the A8 at Newbridge and have been getting blown into the Gyle for the last wee while. Tremendous! I reckon I've averaged between 35 and 40kph from that point on in my commute, compared with my usual 25 - 30 average. Crackin. Until hometime obviously!!gavintc said:I just cycled (was blown) back into the city from Linlithgow at an average speed of 34kph. It was a great fast ride, keeping with the traffic down the Queensferry Road.
I cheat as I work in Glasgow, take the bike on the train from Haymarket to Glasgow and then in the evening the train from glasgow to Linlithgow and then cycle the rest. I work close to Queen St and live very very close to Haymarket. It is a 26km journey and always takes me less than the hour, even taking time to get myself set up and then carrying the bike up 3 flights.Tetedelacourse said:Gav, I now join the A8 at Newbridge and have been getting blown into the Gyle for the last wee while.

Do you commute to Linlithgow or was it a one-off? Just interested in how long it would take - that's a hell of a commute especially into the prevailing wind.
Now there's a name I've not seen on these forums for a while. You settled into your new house ?Hairy Jock said:
