26-June-2016 Portobello Pubbing

On a very fine Sunday, 10 Easycyclers set off from Peter’s yard, with 2 new members among their number. Michael led us to the Crags and then down the south side of Holyrood Park, taking advantage of the ban on cars on a Sunday.  The just opposite the Sheep Heid, we enterd the Secret Garden and enjoyed the terraced gardens to the North of Duddingston Loch.  Next up was a scoot down Cavalry Park drive and through the golf course, then a run through the green parts of Bingham to the Jewel Asda (loo stop).

That done, we took the renovated Bruntstane Burn path into Portobello, and a wee mile Westwards along the Prom took us to the Dalriada, our lunch stop, where we were lucky enough to have the beer garden to ourselves in the sun.

A few Cullen Skinks and isotonic refreshments later, we skimmed along Fishwives Causeway and Northfiled Rd, and had a wee climb at Willowbrae to then skirted along the North of Holyrood Park, and then back to Peter’s Yard.

In all, eight of us made it back for coffees and the ice cream  It was great to welcome two new faces to the group, and to have a nice sunny ride.DSC05304  DSC05316 DSC05327 DSC05344 DSC05353
