Last minute – Pentlandia tomorrow night
I thought i'd given myself tendonitis in my wrist (didn't mention before for fear of laboured 'wrist' jokes 😕 ) but my paramedic flatmate reckons it isn't tendonitis as it had obviously swollen, which tendonitis doesn't usually do.
which means i managed to somehow sprain/fracture it in my sleep, ooer!

bawbag I'll answer as I don't know if TBC is still on line –
Anyone is welcome – its a social ride not a training ride.
we / they tend to meet at "the bike chain" at cannonmills – the OPs bike shop – and then ride out to the pentlands.
The wee shop RRD mentions is the small grocers at bonally – if you know it.
Folk would tend to ride out from TBC along the water of leith to bonally and climb into he hills from there – but not always – can arrange to meet at any obvious point en route. ie the water of leith visitor centre or at murrayfield somewhere or at bonally.
I can give you directions / grid references or whatever to a meet point.Posted 8 years ago
Edit – a bit slow – story of my life 🙂
I'm doing my own thing tonight as I want to get in the door before 9pm for sensible dinner and bed options!
My route is planned (fitness depending) to be Maiden's – Green Clough – Hare Hill – Maiden's – Harbor Hill (?) – Puke Hill and if I have time, Poet's Glen. Maybe see you guys somewhere out there!Posted 8 years ago
Sorry I couldn't hear what you were saying to me about your light…
Its a £50 "bastid" (aka Magicshine). Bright, good run time, etc etc but its tempremental.
Good range of cheap options here inc Magicshine with links:
and a mind numbing discussion on them here:
You can email me if you want more info.Posted 8 years ago
Well cheers to bawbag for accompanying me tonight, although I'm sure he got fed up of my wheezing (not as fit as I thought!) up the hills. Maiden's Cleugh is a total mess at the top, likewise parts of Black Hill are in a bad state, as is the start of Green Cleugh just after the house at the head of Loganlea. Grumble over, mostly dry on the regular trails, but I suspect a lot of stuff is still pretty wet.
What route did you guys do?Posted 8 years ago
