    We’ve talked and we will again I’m sure

    Obvs as a Brixton member Neil is inducted into Edinburgh Hillz immediately, all concerns about moving, specific areas and income tax bands being secondary to that.

    We’re in Broughton, it’s central, a little bit east, great amenities and there is a lot of green space which is great as we have two dogs, but as everyone has already pointed out Edinburgh is so compact you can move about very easily. The only (relatively minor) thing is parking/garage space which comes at a premium.

    It’s also great that it’s surrounded by great road/gravel/whatever cycling in all directions (one direction does require use of a bridge) and there are loads of good MTB trails locally and the Tweed Valley is 50mins away.

    Having lived all over England and Scotland it’s easily the place I have enjoyed living the most

    Could be a winner

    But does everyone have the required handlebar baggery?

    I’ve stolen a Tuesday night in Scotland, so I thought nicking a Thursday evening in England was a logical next step

    Last call on the caps before we put the order in.

    Then we’ll start on the T-shirt thing and jerseys.

    Looks like I’ll be down twice in July, so will look to get some rides up. Might go mad and make them Thursdays though 🧐

    This has been curtailed some what by Covid and the fact that I haven't been coming down to London on the regular (I will though, so hope to get these going again)

    I also know a few of you have been keeping the Hillz end up in some form or another

    I have been running hillz up in Edinburgh meanwhile and its gone down well (mainly). So well in fact that the group has looked at getting some caps made.

    Its open to all and some of you might like one - Link and details are here They are lovely things and a portion of the cost goes to charity

    Hope to hillz with you all soon!
