    If you can get a bit to the south you gotta deal, Kit – say, around Tollcross / The Cameo for 10?

    I’ll think about it Rob. TBH I’m seriously lacking motivation to ride, and I don’t know if I can be arsed riding all the way up to Tollcross with my stuff.

    Thanks for the offer though, I’ll text you later when I’ve made my mind up.

    Since Bruce has gotten cake in it would be rude not to come along for the ride.

    7Hz – do you still have room for a bike and rider in exchange for petrol pennies?

    hope you can make it Kit 😮
    where is jimmy?, France?,
    was out on some of tommorrows trails early this morning and there still dry despite the rain the other day, looking good!

    debaser – You are 1st passenger booked on the Surf Express leaving from corner of Easter Road and Harrismith Place at 10.15 tomorrow! Dinnae worry about petrol money…

    Kit – If you can make it to Albion Road from Trinity, you are welcome as well.

    Just turn up and I’ll spot you, Green Surf is parked on corner ready. If you need to contact me, I think CoastKid has my mobile number from a PM I sent him on MTBR.

    Organization!

    Well decisions made – We both would like to join in so looking for a tandem friendly lift from leith / edinburgh – . Todays riding was not too strenuous so there are miles left in the legs. Druidh – are you taking the uglipla?

    If no tandem lift available we will ride out and bail halfway to ride back

    Ta folks

    great to see a tandem on the trails TJ 😮
    hope you can make it!

    Coastkid – we will probably end up riding out and therefore only able to join you for a few miles not the whole thing unless a saviour with a big roofrack / estate car / van pops up. Times like this not owning a car is a pain.

    I must get a tow behind a motorbike sorted.

    I’ll have the van but don’t think it’s long enough, otherwise I’d give you a lift back. Not saying where to mind.

    steve – it goes in a small van – wheels off its under 6 ft. We have had it in a mondeo hatchback before now

    That would be great if possible

    Righto, I’ll take some of the crap out of it tonight to make space. I’ll ignore comments about taking me on extra hilly routes.

    7hz – got a lift organised, but thanks.

    Will be bringing me camera with the long lens so everyone: make sure you’re all dolled up and looking sweet for the camera 😉

    Doh, don’t have enough time to get ready for the long lens, will rough and ready do?

    Lovely day for it. Would have been worth coming along just to see the tandem in action however have to head out and buy a car later so just ended up doing a local ride in the Pentlands.

    thoughts with you old chap.

    Well I am cream crackered. Absolutely puggled.

    Thanks to steve for the lift back otherwise we would still be on the road somewhere. Or possibly sleeping in a hedge

    Thanks to Coastkid fro the guiding – altho I have learnt that time and distance seems a little flexible in east Lothian / coastkidworld. “Its only a couple of miles to the cake stop” ” No more climbing” yeah right.

    Grand day out tho. Very scenic and good company. Ta

    You didn’t fall for the old ‘just a couple miles more’ chestnut did you?

    Fantastic day out! Can’t believe how lucky we were with the weather. Great company, though a few folks whose names or STW monikers I never caught; chap on the white Cannondale hardtail, and the 456 and sideburns of magnitude I could only ever dream of growing?

    Am rather knackered, too; many thanks to Tom for the lift back to Pencaitland.

    Can I give a speshul thanks to Mrs TJ for retaining her good humour as I dumped her in two beds of nettles in the first 20 mins?

    I am off to work now – nice 12 hr nightshift. Think of me as you enjoy your beer and beds 🙁
