Hi there guys thought i’d introduce myself and explain why i’m looking to join you all.
Well the names Mac (Morgan is what my mum calls me), I’m 28, currently living in Kinloss and my avatar gives away what I do. I am generally quite fit, I play golf with a handicap of 11/12, enjoyed playing football until I was seriously injured which resulted in a broken Fibula and Tibia and as such has limited my playing time. That was back in August but had to go back in at the start of December as there was issues with the Tibia fusing so that has put my recovery time back quite a bit. So in order to keep my fitness going I took to swimming more often and am now considering road cycling as another great way to do so, along with meeting new people.
My bike is a cheapo and will for the most part remain that way, despite being aware that I will get no where near as fast as I could be but that’s not what i’m looking to get out of cycling, so i don’t have an issue with that. Although having a heavier bike (and wheels, the front one is 1960g) will just make my legs stronger.
No doubt at some point I will need to ask questions, probably stupid ones but I don’t take offence at being shouted at.
I am considering making my way down to Nairn tomorrow and will probably set off about 9ish from Kinloss, although having just mapped the route i think 30 miles might be just too far for me just now, so if i’m having issues i’ll be turning round at Brodie and heading back. So no doubt i’ll see you pass me at the back end of Forres
One question: What sort of average speed ranges would you normally get on a 50 miles run?
