Ride Report

The largest group of 20 milers so far this year - 27 at the start - tackled a wiggly route around the South of Edinburgh. The theme was "South Edinburgh Parks" and by my reckoning we went through 10: The Meadows, Holyrood Park, Jewel Park, Burdiehouse Valley Park, The Braids, Fairmilehead Park, Braidburn Valley Park, The Hermitage of Braid, The Inch Park and Craigmillar Castle Park - not to mention more green spaces near the new ERI and Mortonhall.
South Edinburgh Parks

There were some hills and some bumpy paths, and given the amount of broken glass on Edinburgh's paths (as always) we were lucky to make it round with only 2 punctures. Everyone enjoyed the warm spring weather - we even made it to the end of the ride before it started to rain, although there were plenty of rumbles of thunder before then.

The next ride is on Saturday 14th of June, and will be heading out to Balerno. More details nearer the time.
