May's ride to South Queensferry

Today's ride was to South Queensferry. We had some new participants this time - always welcome - and Logan led us out West along the canal, turning off just after the bypass and going through Roddinglaw and down to the A8, where we used the shared path along the main road out to Newbridge (crossing over on the bridge at Ratho Station) and then along the old railway line to Kirkliston, and followed this on to Dalmeny. From there we had a short trip on the road downhill into South Queensferry for lunch.

After lunch we headed West for a short distance before finding our way onto the old railway line at Scotmid, which after a short hill to get to the supermarket leads to a gentle gradient out of town (much appreciated, given all the other routes out of SQ are generally big hills!) and then out of town past the oil tanks and back along the road to Craigiehall (past Craigie Farm) and into Edinburgh via route 1.

Next month's ride is on Saturday 11th June and I'll be leading it. Route TBC!
