MY CYCLE TO WORK – MIKE GOES UP AND OVER THE OCHILL HILLS

MY CYCLE TO WORK - MIKE GOES UP AND OVER THE OCHILL HILLS

Mike could be forgiven for not cycling to work, given that it’s a 44km round trip with over 520 metres of elevation, but he’s not one to shy away from a challenge. This is Mike’s very scenic, but pretty tough, cycle to work…

Mike’s route goes like this:

  • Milnathort – Netherton – Glenfarg – Bridge of Earn – Perth
  • 44km round trip, +520m elevation, 1hr 42min total

Rush hour!

 

Mike’s route takes him past this recently completed eco ‘PassivHaus’ by architect Kirsty Maguire, a friend from Mike’s university days. 

 

What goes up…

About to reach 12% downhill.

There’s a bit of a story to this one.

Mike created a segment on Strava called “Brent’s Descent – Full Gas” in honour of AgileCadence owner and founder James Brentley’s favourite descent and 78.1kmph / 48.5mph speed record!

Mike’s top speed to date is an impressive 73kmph / 45.4mph.

 

Another hill. Middleton Hill this time, 220m. But he’s still smiling!

 


Job done! Arrived at the office in good time to start work – ready for a second breakfast and a coffee!
