On a sunny evening, on the penultimate ride of the year, Norman took
six evening riders down the Rocheid path and across Inverleith park,
then into the path system. Emerging at Davidsons mains, we looped round
and into the grounds of Lauriston Castle. Once inside, we made our way
to the japanese garden where we explored a little.
For the return leg we rolled along the proms amid the fablous setting
sun at Crammond, and we climbed up from the Waterfront estate, via
Forthquarter Park, and then to the Red Bridge, where the group divided
and left four riders to spin along to the final destination, the
Raeburn House Hotel at Stockbridge.
A couple of nice drinks completed this ride and left us looking forward to the final ride of 2016, on 25th August.
