Ride recce and website hits the airwaves.

Friday the 5th February I set off from Kirkcaldy station bound for Edinburgh and a route recce through the city and along both sides of the Forth back to Kirkcaldy.

I had done almost all the route in parts but had never put it together into one ride.  Accompanied by another rider we headed off from Waverley down to the Scottish Parliament and onwards to the shore.  We followed the shore along to Cramond and then up and back down the River Almond.  Coming into South Queensferry the 2 complete bridges and the new crossing were visible and made a great site.  Crossing the Road bridge we started along the Fife Coastal Path through Inverkeithing, Dalgety Bay and onwards to the finish at Kirkcaldy.  Thirty five miles with 2000 ft of climb.

 

The website is now online http//scottishbiketouring.com and a montage of video clips of the ride is visible there.

Scottish Bike Touring will be offering two rides at EDFOC a short clip of the other ride is also available on the site.
