- Wee film from the other evening on the coast at low tide…
Evening ride across the Carr Rocks at Seacliff, East Lothian, SE Scotland on the SURLY Moonlander Fatbike.
A 1.2 meter spring low tide allowed a visit out to the exposed wreck of the SS Poderosa that ran aground here in 1896, just one of many ships wrecked here on the imfamous rocks. Not all wrecks here were accidents but caused by The Pagans of Scoughall who lured ships onto the rocks at night in storms with a lantern tied to a horses head and leg and walked along the cliff tops, ships at sea would see the bobbing light and seeking shelter from the storm would come in to shore, and meet their fate on the rocks. You can read more about the Wreckers, and the SS Poderosa wreck here on a previous blog post;
Wreckers of Seacliff
The Jones steel Truss Fork recently fitted is an improvement riding the rocks, once up to speed the comfort and steering is better, the front end does not flip flop like before,
