1st December: 35.40 miles - Getting the challenge completed early! Just a random spin going where the feeling took me - no planned route at all. Slow puncture at about halfway, topping up with air every few miles got me to the 75% mark, but had to change the tube eventually - https://www.strava.com/activities/2904503134 - 1 point
7th December: 31.78 miles - Not the route I'd hoped to do today but due to various errands / tasks / visits that had to be performed, was a ride with lots of stops and starts. Did eventually get a reasonable distance done in the end though - https://www.strava.com/activities/2917389904 - 1 point

A slightly elongated version of the ride above heading over the hills to Giffnock the picking up the A77 cycle path down to Fenwick before cutting across to Stewarton, Dunlop and home for 41 miles.

This was on Sunday 1st of December that I had hoped Mrs Slick would have joined me but it proved just too cold for her so it was another solo ride exact same as above.
