First proper Edinburgh cycle ride today – though the phone GPS stopped after 15 seconds (battery? pressed stop in the rucksack?) so I had to use to work out the distance. Over 30km in 2 hours which is fine considering about half of it was by the canal – mostly paved but busy with pedestrians, dogs, runners (and the odd cyclist!). I avoided the unpaved part on the way back by using minor roads.

Another couple of little rides over the weeknd (16km and 24km) before bringing Malcolm’s bike back for the winter. Must try to get out on it at least once a week and not just by the canal – I’ve started to get used to the hills!
