I'm coming. What time were you thinking of starting? I'm assuming before lunch, so how about somewhere I can get a cooked breakfast and a cuppa? Nicolson Street somewhere maybe, though this plan involves carrying a lock, so maybe not ideal.

Location: Where? There. There on the stair.
Just seen this, but I am being at the rugby. So there was no point in me posting.

Ah.

Will, if you're still coming round tonight we can chat about it then.

At this rate it's just going to be you, me and Frood.

Le sigh.

So who wants to go see Franklyn?

Sure, looks like it might be worth a punt.

For any latecomers, here's the plan:

We three are going to drag our sorry, hungover arses out of bed tomorrow morning, and the first one up is going to call the other on the phone. Then we're going to meet at Waverley at the Costa some imminent time later. If the prevailing wind holds we will ride to Dunbar, say "Yay!" then get the train back and have beer. If the wind has swung round to come from the east we will get the train to Dunbar, ride back, say "Yay!" and have beer.

If you suddenly get a hankering to come with, text me. If you don't have my mobile number, firstly why in the hell not, and secondly PM me and you shall have it.

Sam

Awesome. Though in the original plan, I think I said high 5, rather than Yay. I'm sure I was more sober then too.

We had a tailwind! It wasn't raining! It was daytime!

Scheduling another ride in a couple of weeks. Details to follow.

Well done on the weather!!
Given your plans, perhaps the tailwind & daylight were less surprising but...

March 13th might be good for me. If anyone wanted to do Glasgow/Croy to Edinburgh, that's a nice wee route with easy public transport...
We can easily include the Tak Ma Doon road if folk are using gears!
