Ride report

Gateways to the East
Today's ride was a little longer than normal - just over 25 miles - and 17 warmly wrapped up cyclists turned up at Middle Meadow Walk with the prospect of "sunshine and showers" - but luckily not much wind. Much better weather than the rainstorm which saw March's ride being abandoned.

We tackled the Hill challenge that Darren set us (up to the start of the Pencaitland Railway) and also made it through the muddy puddles near Newhailes House. Many people on the ride managed more than 30mph going down one super hill into Dalkeith. We had 2 punctures today - unusual as we often seem to go for months with none at all - however we completed the ride by the promised finishing time of 4pm.
