Day 19 – Aberdeen to Dundee

Day 19 – Aberdeen to Dundee

Share on social media

Hard day. As expected.

Wasn’t helped by the fact I went out in Aberdeen and didn’t turn in until around 1am.

Up and out by 9 and it was raining.

Have a slight knee injury from the other day when I tried to ride over one of the speed styles on route 1.

Speed styles

Are put in when the cycle route meets a road or a junction.

It consists of a U shape then an l which the U is shaped around. The l is very low sometimes, and you can ride over it and straight through the speed style.

In this particular case, it was peddle height, so I wound both pedals mid height and went though slowly without putting my legs down.

Just as I was exiting, over-balanced. It didn’t cause a problem at the time, but it placed a slight strain on the muscle in my leg.

For this reason, I’ve been riding relatively slowly.

I’m in Dundee now.

Had a nice Chinese and a bottle of beer. It was a nice ride, especially into Dundee, where cycle route 1 goes through MOD Dundee and a load of golf courses to emerge in Abroath with the view below.

I have to get to Edinburgh and do some laundry tonight.

I’d like to get underway as soon as possible, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
