Ride Report

23 20-milers turned up for a sunny ride that turned out to be about 23 miles long. We headed out along the canal, then turned onto the Water of Leith path just after the viaduct and followed this right to Balerno. We then had the "long climb" of the day ahead of us up to the Red Moss nature reserve at the highest and furthest point of our route. We did, however, have civilised breaks on the way up, complete with Chris's excellent flapjack (thank you Chris). After that it was mostly downhill all the way home. We missed our original lunch destination (Riccarton Garden Centre) but the refectory at Heriot Watt University was a very acceptable alternative. We returned back along the Union Canal the way we had started out.

Tomorrow's ride

Remember to bring a picnic! There are several sandwich shops near the top of Middle Meadow Walk, though.
