Sunday 31st March 2019 Replete in Riccarton.

Easy cycle celebrates Springtime in Riccarton


We had all put our clocks forward one hour and, in good sunshine, set off via Tollcross to the Union Canal. There were eight of us including several newcomers. Admiring the many daffodils and buds on the trees and bushes, we were fair pleased with ourselves. A very friendly group.


We were soon crossing over the bypass and leaving the Canal at bridge 12. Going south, we entered Heriot Watt campus. The cycle route took us through the park where the trees were also coming into bud. We exited at the large roundabout and arrived at Riccarton Garden Centre. Lunch had been booked and we were able to eat outdoors. There was an excellent menu and everyone was pleased with the options.


We continued south via Muir Wood Road and Lanark Road to take the Water of Leith back to Slateford and The Meadows.

14 miles.
