A truly horrible forecast managed to keep the Easycyclists away today, and three riders left Söderberg for a shortened ride to Portobello.
The forecast was for heavy rain – two BBC drops – 10-12. So we kept it short – from Meadows to Holyrood Park, crossing the A1 to Lochend Park where Mike told us the history of the Dovecot. Then along Restalrig path to the prom, quiet today, return was via the long footbridge to the Golf course and then the Innocent.
The actual weather wasn’t too bad – an hour of rain, cold, moderate wind and the riders were well wrapped up. Still, the en-of-ride coffee at the Caley Picture House was very welcome.
