Wee update on trails: Towpath from Cargo pub all the way to the aquaducts is great, hard and fast but with a few wee slaloms around fallen trees. From there the path that joins onto the water of leith is equally good, and the WoL continues the theme.
We didn’t find anything very rideable above Bonaly, but we already new that, the trails in Dreghorn were close to rideable, but not (especially not on the CX bike, I’ve found the limit of what can be ridden on it).
Mortonhall was brilliant, all the trails are compacted and fast, and should get more so. We did a couple of loops around there before heading home.
So the rest of the winter for me will consist of hammering around on the towpaths and WoL until I’m given cast iron proof that some other trails are packed in. 😕Posted 7 years agoStuSubscriber
Aye, great fun round Mortonhall, seriously hard work around Bonaly. Had wee look at Braids bridle path on the way home and it looked pretty compacted too so might go for another play tonight 😀
Anyone scouted out the nail trail yet? It should be good when its compacted!Posted 7 years agoTandemJeremyMember

Dunno if tj tried Arthurs Seat, I pedalled up to the top pond tonight en route home from work on cx bike.
Rideable on the road or walked paths. Saw a few tyre tracks off road and a couple of guys snowboarding from the top.
Full depth snow was rideable with a bit of a gradient. Was fun, may head up to mess about at the weekend.Posted 7 years ago
