On a cool haary evening, on the last ride of the year, Jim took six evening riders on the roads to Craigleith via Stockbridge, were we met with an old friend.

Light being a little short, we took the Blachall path to Crammond, pausing to look at Crammond tower, a defensive structure built by the Bishops of Dunkeld. We had a nice view of Crammond island, and behind it, Fife shrouded in haar.

From there, an easy spin along the prom took us to the junction with the Waterfront Estate, then up the Granton Access path to the Red Bridge, where two left to return to Leith. The remaider followed to Roseburn path & Russel Road, where the hard core pressed on to behind Lidl and up the bumpy steps to the very pleasant Fountain pub, in Fountainbridge and near the canal.

A couple of nice drinks completed this ride, and with it the 2016 evening ride season. We could see that it was time to finish, because it looked quite dark at 20:30. We look forward to reconvening in 2017.
