Kids away, parents will play. Cycle to Innerleithen and get the train back from Tweedbank.
Get to Roslin via Little France and the Wisp then onto the new cycle path.
Do you think we should get some food to take with us Ray? I ask. Nah, it’s not very far, he says. It’s only about 20 miles from Edinburgh, and we’ve done 10 already. I’ve cycled it before. I thought it was further than that I said.
We cycled another 4 miles to Carrington where we a sign saying Innerleithen 20 miles. WTF says Ray. Personally I was more than a little worried we might hit the wall in the middle of nowhere. We survived to a very good cafe in Innerleithen, after which we did 16 more to the train. A nice outing, all away from busy roads.
Another day of limited training opportunities. Was going to go off road, before I realised I’d packed the kids off to cubs / scout camp with both head torches. Nice to get out around queens drive in the dark. Niggly left Achilles, caused most likely by going to the track.
