    Previous tag: Dryden Terrace looking towards "The Engine Yard" development

    New Tag: Clubhouse for a sport you might not think of as quintessentially Scottish in a part of Edinburgh named for a definitively Scottish one.

    Just enjoyed my introduction to the Bathgate Alps with your 04/01 route, @Ecobeard—thanks for sharing, it was a fun first proper Scottish ride!

    Last week riding in London before Edinburgh move, so a fitting time to be hit by a car for the first time—not bad going as 30-year-old Londoner I realise...
    Stupid Uber driver decided to nose round a bus and not check whether anyone might be using the bright blue cycle lane along from Clapham North. At least I broke his number plate with my shin and he's only left me with scratches, bruises, and a slow puncture. Even as I get more sore, the last of those is the most annoying!

    That's super kind, I think I ought to have Thursdays off too—I'll be in touch.

    References complete so I'm joining the Edinburgh crew from the beginning of September—can't wait to get stuck in to some of these routes and hopefully contribute the odd one.

    My Saucony Peregrine 5s are coming to the end and I see that the model numbers have really moved up. Given that I actively look forward to putting them on at the moment—never worn anything more comfortable—does anyone happen to have any experience of the latest model, especially as to whether the toebox has changed? My stupidly wide feet thank you.

    My partner and I—she's a central Edinburgh native but has been in London for 8 years—are having basically the same thoughts at the moment. Before everything happened, we were on the point of looking at houses seriously and completely agree on Musselburgh.

    In keeping an eye on Rightmove etc., we've been pleasantly surprised by the frequency with which something we actually like emerges. Sure you've found espc and their exclusive properties but some good stuff seems to end up on there.
