Edinburgh festival of cycling (EdFoC) update.

SBT will once more be guiding two rides at EdFoC.  This years rides are Innocent Railway and Rosslyn Chapel a 30 miler on cycle paths and some roads with time to take a tour of the Chapel.  The second tour is The Waterways of Edinburgh this will be covered in another post..

This is s great ride and it’s sometimes hard to believe that you are in the middle of Scotland’s capital as you pedal through woods and parkland.  The route also takes in some of the River Esk way.   Leaving Roslin you follow another old railway that has been converted to pathway and head back towards Auld Reekie.  You cross the a lattice work viaduct engineered by the same man responsible for the Tay rail bridge!!  Needless to say I didn’t stay on it long!


As we head back into Edinburgh Salisbury Crags come into view and we pick up the Innocent Railway for another chance to go through the tunnel or over it!!

Tours start and finish at the Scottish Parliament at 1030 see EdFoC website for details and check out the other great events taking place.


Launch day 1st April

I have been seeing an advisor to help launch the business and on Friday we finally completed the business plan for submission to his boss.  The figures look really optimistic even with a lot of adjustment but I am hoping for the best and keeping everything crossed.

Friday the 1st of April is the date we have set for the launch of the company the first tour will be a trip from the Scottish Parliament to the Canal Basin via the Innocent Railway, Pentland hills and the Union Canal.  I have had it posted on the FB page and have 4 interested whether that turns into 4 clients or not I don’t know!

I never thought at 58 I would be launching a new venture like this.  Truly there is life in the auld dug yet.
