Friday 3 August 2012: Mutton Chops
I blame that Bradley Wiggins and his cronies. Two days and almost 60 miles clocked up on the bike. It always seems to happen during big sporting events; Wimbledon has them all out batting balls back and forth, and there seems to be an increase on two wheeled traffic on the cycle paths around here after all the Tour de France and Olympics cycling being served up. Now that the track and field events have kicked off, look out for those javelins and shot puts flying around.
Took a leisurely tour around the Forth today and stopped off again here at the old abandoned naval munitions stores at Bandeath (pronounced Ban-Deeth, Not Ban-Deth despite all the warnings about the asbestos lying around and the threat of a muttony mauling from all the sheep that have taken over the place). Not sure if there's been some dodgy dealings gone on here recently as all of the rail tracks that used to weave in and out the warehouses to carry the ammunition down to the River Forth have been lifted (making it really difficult to cycle around) and there's some heavy duty concrete blocking the entrance to the site been added. Plenty scrap in that lot I'm sure.
Also stopped off at the Pineapple and ate my banana and nectarine whilst a rain shower passed.
A good day in the saddle, and definitely looking forward to some Friday froth now.
