August ride this coming Saturday
We've got our August ride coming up this Saturday (13th). Michael (Law) will be leading us out to Musselburgh and then on to Dalkeith. Most of the route will be on good paths and quiet roads, although there will be a couple of stretches that might be busy with traffic. There will be one steep climb near the start, with the rest of the route being reasonably flat. The total distance will be about 24 miles.
Our lunch break will be in Dalkeith town centre. Some of us will opt for a picnic in the King's Park; there is a good supermarket nearby where you can pick up a sandwich if you wish. Those who prefer a hot lunch will head for the Blacksmith's Forge pub, which does a good range of snacks at very reasonable prices.
You don't need me to tell you that the ride will start from the north end of Middle Meadow Walk at 10.30. There is no need to reply to this post: just turn up if you can make it.
Looking ahead, Logan will be leading a longer run into East Lothian on the following Saturday. I'll post more details of that ride here next week.
