Day Six

The leg to Edinburgh, a tale of two halves

After replacing the wheel on Roy’s bike and putting the wheel back on mine, we set off for the next leg.

Roads and cycle paths up and down was quite nice if a bit overcast. As we pushed on the rain started and when we popped out on the main road it was really heavy. A stop at a garage and a decision was made to stay on this road all the way to Edinburgh.  A bovril in the garage was like nectar and a burst of energy was taken and we hammered down the road heading for Coldstream and the border.

Good time was again had and we swung over the bridge at Coldstream and Scotland. A quick photo stop and up the bank into town we went. Food drink and a toilet then off pushing hard for Edinburgh stopping for more food and drink.

Back onto the main ride and one long upward drag that went on for ever but once over it was racing downhill to the city and an early finish. Digs sorted showered then out for real food and one or two drinks, bed early and we were firmly in Scotland
